The conservative backlash against critical race theory often has nothing to do with the academic concept, says renowned scholar and theorist Kimberlé Crenshaw (@sandylocks). "What the assault was against was antiracism."

Meet the moment with us at CRT Summer School! There's still time to register for our ongoing week of programming #CRTSS22 web.cvent.com/event/cee3600f…

It was such a pleasure to join @democracynow this morning to discuss the urgency of this moment. Every day, people practice Critical Race Theory as they navigate a world governed by systemic racism and white supremacy. We need CRT to understand these conditions. #TruthBeTold twitter.com/democracynow/s…

bell hooks: “the classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility [where] we have the opportunity to labor for freedom…To collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom.”#CRTSS embodies this. twitter.com/sandylocks/sta…

If the democratic values we claim as Americans were real, Jamie Raskin would be in his way to the White House. Mic drop.
“When they come after one group and everyone lets them do it, then they’ll come after the next group…” -Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw on the #UnitedShades tonight. Seriously, folks should be watching this right now.

Tonight, I'm looking forward to answering honest questions about CRT, a rare opportunity in the media's frenzied response to a right-wing racial panic. The truth was never that hard to find; too many just weren't looking for it. Check us out and join the conversation right here. twitter.com/wkamaubell/sta…

90 bullets?! For a traffic violation?!?! This can happen to any of us, anywhere, including in our stomping grounds, NE Ohio. They say as OH goes, so does the nation. Tamir, Tanisha...how many others? What will we do? @KingJames @MacyGraysLife twitter.com/SkyDigg4/statu…
If @TheJusticeDept does not pursue all of the evidence presented by the @January6thCmte to the fullest extent of its powers, Trump and his white supremacist allies will try to steal our government again. We cannot afford inaction in the face of existential threats to democracy. twitter.com/CarolLeonnig/s…
We pretend Brown v Board/Roe epitomized a SCOTUS that has stood to protect the rights of the marginalized & vulnerable. But that has rarely been true for the Court. For most of its history, it has consisted of elite white men upholding the power & privileges of elite white men.
Retweeted by Kimberlé Crenshaw
The worst-case scenarios are coming home to roost. We simply cannot afford to sustain separate, siloed movements; they are coming for every hard-fought civil right won in the last 50 years. WE have to fight back like our lives depend on it. Because they do. Join us.
When Clarence Thomas was confirmed, I knew the misogyny and intraracism on display against Anita Hill was going to threaten all Americans. We founded @AAPolicyForum to fight back. That fight has reached new heights today now that the Court has unleashed grave threats to life.
It's clear the Court's assault on fundamental rights will not stop with abortion. They are coming for contraception, LGBTQ rights, gay marriage next. Combined with the GOP dismantling of voting rights, we are on the brink of autocracy. Democrats must act. twitter.com/fordm/status/1…
No unelected body should have the power to strip people of their human right to autonomy, especially an institution as plagued by controversy, illegitimacy, and naked partisanship as the United States Supreme Court. @sandylocks on #DobbsVJWHO #RoeVWade #LiberateAbortion
So looking forward to the premiere, Kamau! There will be some surprises I think... twitter.com/wkamaubell/sta…
For #Juneteeneth, our latest: @aeconwright excavates the brutal social truths beneath a holiday of uplift forummag.com/2022/06/17/jun… @sandylocks asks leaders to grapple with the intersecting crisis of racism and tyranny instead of simply celebrating a holiday forummag.com/2022/06/20/jun…

Instead of funding private institutions that serve the special interests of the Court, lawmakers should focus on fully funding public education to ensure every student has the resources they need to thrive, and those schools should teach true, inclusive history. #TruthBeTold
Public dollars should fund the public - not private institutions with no oversight and the unbound freedom to discriminate against students, espouse biased curriculum about our history and present, and entrench conservative political ideologies.
The Supreme Court is taking a sledgehammer to the fundamental truth this nation was founded on: the separation of Church and State. With this decision, we will lose the cohesion of public education - the very fabric of our democracy - to the whims of the conservative right. twitter.com/mjs_DC/status/…
Brittney's wife speaks the truth: "If I can’t trust you to catch a Saturday call outside of business hours, how can I trust you to actually be negotiating on my wife’s behalf to come home? Because that’s a much bigger ask than to catch a Saturday call.” apnews.com/article/russia…
Defending our right to teach the honest, inclusive, truthful history of our nation is the defense of democracy and civil rights itself. Celebrate Juneteenth with me by getting involved in our fight: aapf.org/truthbetold
#Juneteenth celebrates the day Black slaves in Texas were finally informed of their freedom. While the emancipation proclamation technically freed them, knowledge of their rights materially liberated them. Today, the far-right wants to rob us of our history, our truth, our power.

I applaud the @TheJusticeDept's decision to file federal hate crime charges against the Buffalo shooter—a first step in bringing justice for families. But without further actions from Congress to protect Black Americans from terror, the chilling effect of this massacre remains. twitter.com/ryanjreilly/st…
It meant so much that Rep. @BennieGThompson said this. Because for many Black people this is the context in which we hear the denials, the shadings of truth, the gaslighting and the perfidy. Just know that. We know something about this country. We are appalled, but not surprised. twitter.com/atrupar/status…

January 6th was the obvious growth from ground made fertile by white supremacy. To protect our democracy, we must confront and interrogate the racist history that brought us to this day. My statement: twitter.com/AAPolicyForum/…
