      Abstract: "Black women have been writing, joking, and 'me too'ing themselves into existence."As a scholar of Afro-Latinidades, it is a particular pleasure for me to offer Meridians readers this issue devoted to "Black Feminisms in the Caribbean and the United States: Representation, Rebellion, Radicalism, and Reckoning." This curated conversation about Black feminist liberation strategies, which vary and move across time and place, is aptly illustrated with cover art by Haitian artist Mafalda Nicolas Mondestin, Ann fè on ti pale (The Meeting). Ann fè on ti pale is a Haitian Kreyol expression that means "let's chat about it" or "we should chat" (pers. comm., August 29, 2021), and, apropos of that invitation, we open the ... Read More

      Abstract: On January 4, 2020, Kyrah Malika Daniels interviewed Edwidge Danticat at her home in southern Florida to explore the subjects of Vodou and interfaith dialogue, her religious upbringing, representations of Haitian religion in the media and in the world, sacred space and the environment, and divine archetypes present in her body of writings.Thank you so much for meeting with me today. Your writings have had a profound impact on me and so many others, and it's an honor to sit down with you and discuss the role of religion in your life and work.Yes, of course. I'm looking forward to the conversation.I'd like to begin by asking about how you were raised religiously, both in Haiti and later in the United States. I know ... Read More

  • Beyond Tragedy: Black Girlhood in Marlon James's The Book of Night Women
           and Evelyne Trouillot's Rosalie l'infâme

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Resistive (adj.): Capable of or characterized by resistance; having a tendency or disposition to resist something or someone.—Oxford English DictionaryNeo-slave narratives invite critical reflection on time. Slavery in the Atlantic world is the temporal location from which these texts examine various scenes of horror, trauma, and resistance. They also engage productively and provocatively with a range of other genres as they narrate and account for the past. The slave narrative is by turns a predecessor to be emulated and a constraining force whose limits are to be examined and disrupted. Likewise, the Gothic offers tropes that, when replicated and reimagined, allow for an examination of violence, force, coercion ... Read More

  • Disruptive Ruptures: The Necessity of Black/Girlhood Imaginary

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We strategically write "Black forward slash Girlhood" to signal both an abstract configuration and a lived embodied experience of Black girlness that is in dialogue with global imaginings. The oblique line—the American English slash—symbolizes the space, the gap, the expectations, the interruption, the omission, the expansion, the theoretical downward slope, the jubilant upward reach, the implicit fall forward, and explicit push back created within and between culture's reconnaissance of Blackness and girlness. Used grammatically to mark both inclusivity and exclusivity, the slash between Black and Girlhood denotes the broad stroke with which we include varying notions of Blackness—notions that do not hinge on an ...

  • Carlota's Hum: An Archive Fiction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Carlota and Fermina, las rebeldes of the province of Matanzas, Cuba. This is a real story about two women who led a traveling rebellion that freed over three hundred enslaved people of Matanzas. A rebellion borne out of Carlota's prayers and dreams before it ever touched land or spread across neighboring plantations like a storm. This is a story, fabulated, of how the enslaved easily communicated with gods and goddesses. This story pays homage to Black women's incessant will to fight against chattel slavery in Cuba.I wanted to encounter the archive and excavate a deeper, more intimate history. In the process, I had to figure and reconfigure time lines, maps, and characters and find new methods that would allow me ... Read More

  • Afro-Latina Disidentification and Bridging: Lourdes Casal's Critical Race
           Theory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The exiled Cuban social scientist, writer, and feminist activist Lourdes Casal breaks with social scientific convention and identifies in the first person with Blackness in her essays about race and revolution in Cuba. To forge tools for dismantling the master's house, she engages with Black and Cuban radical traditions through disidentification—or a reformatting of theories she found useful yet at the same time exclusionary or dismissive (Lorde 1984; Muñoz 1999: 9). Identifying as "Hispanic Black" in Black and Latin Americanist academic circles, as a third-world feminist who brought to light academic feminism's blindspots, and as a New York-Cuban who became a supporter and scholar of the Cuban revolution, Casal ...

  • Remittances

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The title of this poem, "Remittances," refers to money transferred from a person in one country to family members and friends in another. These payments are transnational gestures of care and sacrifice, tying immigrants to the lands of their birth, to "faceless" flows of capital, and to relatives with whom they share intimate racialized and gendered histories. "Remittances" begins by tracing back a legacy of misogynoir, as the term was coined and conceptualized by queer Black feminist scholar Moya Bailey. It then contemplates the intergenerational expressions of love available to cisgender men in post-revolutionary Cuba. It is the latest in a series of poems about Santiago, starting with "Six Eulogies for a Cuban ... Read More

  • La Reina de la Fusión: Xiomara Fortuna Coming of Age in the Dominican

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I am Xiomara Fortuna. I was born in Monte Cristi at the border with Haiti—the Dominican Republic and Haiti—where I lived my early years. I lived my first 19 years there in Monte Cristi. I never left the community until age 19, when I came to the city of Santo Domingo, after traveling at that time to Cuba and Jamaica. This visit to Cuba had a great impact on my life. This was 1978.On International Women's Day in 2017, musician Xiomara Fortuna received a medal of honor from the Dominican president, Danilo Medina, in recognition of her lifetime of activism in women's rights, anti-racism, and environmentalism (see fig. 2). The award stirred controversy in the local media because Fortuna accepted it at the national ... Read More

  • Signifying Sistas: Black Women's Humor and Intersectional Poetics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With the notable exception of Key & Peele, when Chappelle's Show abruptly ended in 2006, there was a conspicuous absence of African American sketch comedy on television. Much like Chappelle's Show, Key & Peele amassed its own cult following while introducing viewers to the comic talents of Keegan Michael Key and Oscar winner Jordan Peele in the process. Almost five years after Key & Peele ended and more than a decade after Chappelle's Show's untimely demise, HBO's A Black Lady Sketch Show arrived on the scene to fill a much-needed void. Not only does it build on the success of the handful of sketch comedy shows helmed by Black men that came before it, but it also centers the experiences of Black women in ways that ... Read More

  • Apologizing to Chavers: #Blackgirlmagic's Resilience Discourse and the
           Fear of Melancholy Black Femme Digital Subjectivity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On January 13, 2016, Elle magazine posted an op-ed by Linda Chavers (2016b) on its social media, "Here's My Problem with #Blackgirlmagic: Black Girls Aren't Magic. We're Human." Her primary criticism of the hashtag is its similarity to the strong Black woman archetype, "the persistent image of a Black woman who perseveres, who survives, who continues on. In pain. In Suffering." She argues that being magical, similar to being strong, marks Black women as unneeding of care and consideration by people and institutions. Moreover, #Blackgirlmagic encourages Black women to see themselves as winners in a game of survival, overshadowing other responses Black women have to oppression. Chavers references the tragedies of ... Read More

  • An Intersectional Approach to Interrogating Rights: How the United States
           Does Not Comply with the Racial Equality Treaty

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The United States is a leading economy in the world yet does not meet global human rights standards regarding economic, social, and cultural rights. In 1969 the United Nations' (UN) core binding anti-racism treaty came into force and is referred to as the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD). The multilateral agreement has 88 signatories and 182 state parties. In 1994 the United States ratified the treaty yet still does not fully comply with the statute. Scholarship that investigates this lack of compliance is commonly "gender neutral" and ignores women's specific needs. To address this gap in scholarship, I explore the United States' poor compliance with the ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This piece began with a series of conversations about a trip we both took to the Netherlands to present our research on global racial equity in education. It was a trip mainly attended by scholars who, at the time, were in the United States and who are racially minoritized.1 During this trip, we went on a Black heritage tour of the Netherlands that included a museum that was the former house of a key stakeholder in the slave trade. It included a powerful exhibit on Suriname, a former Dutch colony located off the coast of South America. The exhibit was located in the horse carriage area of the house—a location we instinctively felt was problematic and further dehumanizing of the people and history it was aiming to ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nicolas Mondestin's most recent body of work starts as an exploration of the relationship that exists between female bodies and the spaces they evolve in—in this case, nature. Bare female bodies are seen holding court evolving in a safe space, untouched by man-made constructions and constraints. The work questions not only the reciprocal influence between female bodies and nature, but also between the female body and society. It examines how bodies are shaped by societal views and how we transform them in ... Read More

The passage should have read as follows:I extend this framework to capture various literary, visual, musical, cinematic, performative, theatrical, and other modes of expressive cultures aligned with social justice movements that at once critique differential distributions of power, resources, and life chances in the present and conjure what German Marxist philosopher Ernst Bloch once called the 'anticipatory illumination of art' that is necessary to envisage social life anew.
