Me (@jmjafrx) at Smith College on 2/27 on Time Travel, Slavery, New Orleans

La Marie-Séraphine (1770) / Excerpt from Bertrand Guillet, La Marie-Séraphine: Navire négrier, Nantes: Editions MeMo, 2009

Spent a lovely day at Smith College yesterday discussing slavery, Afro-Atlantic history, the politics of writing history about enslaved women (and doing it as a black woman), queering slavery, Afrofuturism, time travel (with many references to the time travel work of Black Quantum Futurism), and digital media. 

I also got to fangirl all over Andrea Hairston again–because how can you not?
