Robin Boylorn, an associate professor in communication studies at The University of Alabama, and her co-authors will host a book reading and signing for their collaborative work, “The Crunk Feminist Collection.” 

The event will take place at Barnes & Noble on March 1 from 6-8 p.m. and is open to the public. 

“We offer a crunk perspective that is intersectional, accountable, political, conscious and informed,” Boylorn said to UANews. “We use our academic and at home voices to theorize, critique, think through and call out things we find to be problematic, oppressive or discriminatory.”

The book consists of several different blogs and strives to create safer communities for thoughts and conversation on black feminism. The specific style and voice they use in the collective is how they coined the phrase “crunk feminism,” according to UANews. 

“Crunk feminism refers to our investment in bucking at systems of injustice and unapologetically and boldly calling out systems of oppression,” Boylorn said to UANews. “We are committed to dismantling hierarchal and patriarchal systems that fail to account for the most vulnerable folk in our communities, including ourselves.”
