A remarkable and powerful speaker on both racial and gender-specific equality and a passionate human civil rights/social justice activist born in 1959, Kimberle Crenshaw has made waves across the global culture through her creation of the theory of Intersectionality, a Neo-Marxist ideology. Intersectionality is, in a nutshell, the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Crenshaw has written articles that have appeared in publications such as the Harvard Law ReviewNational Black Law JournalStanford Law Review and Southern California Law Review.

On top of that, Crenshaw has spoken on topics like race matters, addressing audiences across the United States as well as in India, Europe, South America, and Africa.
