Sharon P. Holland is a professor of critical race, queer, and feminist theory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She lives on Catawba, Eno, and Shakori land. In this interview, recorded in June 2017, Sharon talks about her childhood in D.C. and Durham, NC, her journey towards finding an identity that fits, the 8 magical acres she calls "Sweet Negritude" where she makes her home, and the Black intellectual thought that has guided her throughout her life.
