via the Lit Review Podcast:

“Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color is a very timely examination of how Black women, Indigenous women, and women of color experience racial profiling, police brutality, and immigration enforcement.

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.
