Critical Race Feminism further refines Black Feminism's application in the TASJ model by bringing the role of justice into the forefront.
The TASJ model specifically integrates Critical Race Feminism through its methodological approach of policy discourse analysis and its focus on praxis.
As Parker (2008, 1) recognizes, critical race theory can be "linked to Africana studies as a way to push for tangible actions for change rooted in the race-based experiences of black populations." The TASJ model can play an important role in linking Africana Studies, Critical Race Theory, and Black feminism.
Based on this definition, the TASJ model fits within Africana Studies as a theoretical-grounded; methodological-informed; and praxis-oriented tool for engaging in social justice activism.
Accordingly, Gordon's (Christian, 2010) definition of Black Studies includes the "development of new approaches to the study of the Black experience" and "the development of social policies which will impact positively upon the lives of Black people." The TASJ model, then, responds to this call within Africana Studies for a new, comprehensive approach.
Thus, TASJ responds to Aldridge's plea to promote gender equity within Africana Studies.
The TASJ model is consistent with this definition of Africana Critical Theory.
Social movement theory and collective action frames (Snow and Benford, 2000) are key components in the TASJ model.
