Framework of Analysis

The Du Bois Policy Center, under the influence and guidance of our mission, vision, and core values, also adopts Intersectionality and Pan-Africanism as frames of reference when conducting our work. Intersectionality forces us to consider the role race, gender, and class play in providing space, offering nuance, and policy equity for Black communities to ensure that not some, but all, Black folks are liberated. Likewise, embracing Pan-Africanism focuses on building alliances with African people in the diaspora and African continent to build relationships, provide support, and fight collaboratively for salient liberatory public policy concerns affecting African people worldwide. This Pan-Africanism recognizes the many global places and cultural realities within which African people reside.
