While much research has been dedicated to exploring how Black people as a collective respond to racism, or how White women as collective respond to sexism, little empirical research has been found regarding the experiences of combatting both racism and sexism while being both Black and woman. The theoretical perspectives of Black feminist thought, intersectionality, and grounded theory are used as aides to the study of Black women’s lived experiences and therefore central to this project. Using qualitative, open ended interviews, this thesis observes the ways in which misogynoir, Black male patriarchy, and controlling images reinforce sexual double standards and obstruct the sexual agency of collegiate Black women.
