This virtual presentation follows narratives and reflections of six Black women and their professor, a white woman, as we grappled with theory in a qualitative research course. The process of grappling with theoretical texts and sharing stories inspired by the texts created a community of exploring new ways of knowledge-making and dis/uncovering what we already know(knew). Through sharing our stories, we invite participants to examine and unfold their own relationships to and with theory. As McKittrick (2021) encourages, our reading, writing, and thinking practices are couched in our disobedience and refusal to accept what is given to us as knowledge and truth. Grounded in our identities as Black women and a white woman, we wonder how does (did) Blackwomanness matter in relation to theory and reading theory?
