Abstract

This article (originally written as a performance piece) focuses on the lessons learned while conducting qualitative research on Black women in the academy, in particular the lessons learned from Dr Vivi South. Theoretical insights from Critical Race Theory, Queer Theory, Black Feminist Thought, and Narrative Inquiry inform the piece to create an engaging and educational experience that blurs boundaries between traditional modes of academic demonstration, performance, and storytelling. Blurring boundaries between research and practice, theory and method, social science and humanities, community and university creates a space for scholars to rethink the traditional qualitative research interview and the problems of equity in the academy.
