Treva Lindsey is Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Ohio State University. She specializes in black feminist theory, women’s history, and popular culture studies, and offers an analysis of how black women continue to dramatically impact the societies, economies, and communities in which they thrive.
