Rosalind Flynn Hinton
Rosalind Hinton is an oral historian, independent scholar, educator, non-profit consultant and activist. She considers New Orleans her home and context. Having studied music as an undergraduate in New Orleans she celebrates the joyous mix of intuitive and embodied knowledge from multiple communities as the basis for a justice seeking democracy. She created laoutloud.wp.tulane.edu and nolajewishwomen.tulane.edu, websites dedicated to storytelling and narrative forms of learning. She has a PhD in Religious Studies from Northwestern University and has taught multiculturalism, feminist theology and African American Religions at DePaul University in Chicago and at Tulane and Loyola Universities in New Orleans.
She believes that we are running out of time and that all scholars must find ways to be activists and help their communities think critically about interventions that heal and build an inclusive world. Her current interests are environmental racism and reproductive health and her context is, you guessed it, Louisiana, a hard place for progressive politics.
