Dr. Nicole Racquel Carr is an assistant professor of English at Texas A&M San Antonio. She teaches classes in African American literature, Black Feminisms, and Pop Culture. Her scholarship focuses primarily on Black Maternities, Black Feminisms, and the ways in which Black women negotiate their own unique subjectivities vis à vis white supremacy. She is currently at work on her first book, I Am Not Your Mammy: Black Feminist Mothering in the 21st Century. In 2022, Dr. Carr will release “High Risk: Black Mothers Protecting Themselves and Their Babies.” The film, centering Black caregivers, mothers, and healthcare providers, examines the resistance strategies Black women develop in the wake of the maternal health care crisis in the United States.
