Learning Goal: I’m working on a social science multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1.) What does Du Bois mean by “double-consciousness” and how does this concept play out in his own experience? Provide examples of how this occurs in one’s life, perhaps draw from your own experiences.
Your response should be at least 200 words
2.)Collins is perhaps best known for her concept of “intersectionality” in which multiple systems of oppression, or what Collins calls the matrix of domination, overlap to create systematic inequality that each of us faces in our own unique way. Draw upon your own lived experience to describe a concrete situation in which you found yourself at the center of a matrix of domination, either as a victim or as an oppressor.
