Darnell Moore is an aquarius, sometimes dreamer, and educator. He is a black queer American writer and activist whose advocacy centers on marginal identity, youth development and other social justice issues in the U.S. and abroad, including black masculinities.
Darnell assisted in organizing the Black Lives Matter’s Ride to Ferguson in the wake of Mike Brown’s tragic murder along with Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi (#BlackLivesMatter co-founders).
A prolific writer, Darnell’s essays, poetry and social commentary has been published in various media outlets. He is currently a co-managing editor at The Feminist Wire and a writer-in-residence at the Center on African American Religion, Sexual Politics and Social Justice at Columbia University.
He is well known for “intralocality,” a theoretical perspective conceptualized by Moore which extends Kimberlé Crenshaw’s theory of intersectionality.
Intralocality is the work that requires the locating of the “I” in the intersection. Name your own complicities. http://t.co/NzG8qX3NmD
