I saw a post on this blog that featured the writer’s readings for the week and I thought I’d start doing the same.
Last week I read about sex work and its relationship to race and class. I summarized one post about an essay by Stephanie L. Tatum. Overall, I think last week’s reading got me thinking about how the history of colonialism created the spaces where people work. I started to wonder how this legacy might inform the location of strip clubs Black women tend to dance at.
