Evette Dionne is a Black Feminist culture writer, editor and scholar based in Denver.
Presently, Dionne is senior news and identity editor at Revelist, a Cafe Media site for millennial women. She’s also a weekend breaking news writer for Refinery29 and Complex Magazine’s pop culture vertical.
Her reported features, cultural commentary, and personal essays have also been published in/on the New York Times, The Toast, MIC, Teen Vogue, VIBE Vixen, xoJane, The Root, For Harriet, Urban Cusp, Ravishly, LoveBrownSugar, Madame Noire, Betty Confidential and Uptown Magazine.
When Dionne’s not writing or tweeting, she’s researching. She’s an independent critical media studies scholar who uses critical theories like Black Feminist Thought, Critical Race Theory, and Strategic Whiteness to examine Black female sexualities and pleasure within media texts, including film, television, and music videos.
She is most concerned with how Black popular culture reinforces and resists historical stereotypes of Black female sexualities, power and desire. Right now, she’s working on a book chapter about Beyoncé. Yes, that Beyoncé. And it will be epic.
