Research and discussion on health, social, and civic concerns in recent years sometimes have focused on the notion of intersectionality. What exactly does that idea mean and what does it highlight about the multiple identities people hold? On this episode, we talk with Dr. Keisha Bentley-Edwards of Duke University about her work and Associate Producer Amarachi Anakaraonye also reports on a public health project in South Carolina that puts intersectional thinking into action.
