Dialogue Panel Presentation: Not Your Mammy: Addressing the Challenges of Black Femme Emotional Labor in Diverse Sex Ed Spaces
Description: The sex ed classroom can be an amazing place to explore the realities of privilege, oppression, and their varying intersections. At the same time, unpacking these complexities can be a great source of anxiety, particularly for Black femmes who find themselves marginalized within the discourse, while simultaneously shouldering the burden of care for struggling fellow learners. This session features stories and perspectives from Black femmes in the academy, along with time to strategize about creating safer spaces.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify two specific ways that poor group facilitation creates undue emotional labor for marginalized populations in the sex ed classroom; identify at least one way this challenge is particularly salient for Black femme students; imagine and develop one strategy for creating safer intellectual spaces for Black femme and other marginalized students.
