THE BLACK GEOGRAPHIC
I started the Berkeley Black Geographies Project in 2016 after joining the Geography Department at the University of California, Berkeley. The idea of the project is to advance a contemporary understanding of Geography and other disciplinary analyses of spatial relations through the centering of Blackness. The project is now a collaborative effort, with faculty colleagues Brandi Thompson Summers and Sharad Chari, working across the areas of programming, pedagogy, and publishing. As one product of the project, I am co-editing The Black Geographic: Praxis, Resistance, Futurity, forthcoming with Duke University Press with Camilla Hawthorne.
