Kim M Reynolds is a Black and queer critical media scholar, writer and artist from Ohio. She recently completed a MSc and an MA in media and communications from the London School of Economics and Political Science and The University of Cape Town, (with distinction). Her research interests centre largely on how oppression is reproduced through discourse and media, and she focuses on discursive colonialism and neoliberalism, Black feminist thought, critical race theory, Black queer theory, and postcolonial theory. Now based in Cape Town, her work comes in the form of writing (poetry and journalism), producing, and organizing and prioritizing the advancement of Black queer thought and people.
Reynolds is currently a member of US-based research and organizing collective Our Data Bodies and a co-producer of an independent study focusing on Black identity and dance for radio and online presentation in Cape Town.
