We talk about Dr. Bowleg's work documenting intersecting stigma and discrimination, and the foundation of intersectionality in the works of Audre Lorde, bell hooks, and Sojourner Truth. We discuss how racism and other forms of discrimination: limit people's potential, rights and freedoms; manifest in health problems; and reduce opportunities to thrive.
