      Abstract: bell hooks states, "Love is an action, never simply a feeling." This issue, Black Love, arrives during a critical moment in the ongoing struggle for racial justice. With the political urgency of the Movement for Black Lives, prison abolition, cops out of Pride, decolonize the curriculum, and bell hooks joining the ancestors, we remember love is a verb. We use this vision to help us imagine a better life in which love transcends rigid concepts of romantic coupledom under capitalism, and instead, expands the thought and practice of love as a community project of mutual aid, trust, care, kindness, compassion, respect, and solidarity across the spectrum of difference. The politics of love holds much promise for ... Read More

      Abstract: On November 24, 2021, we watched as a white southern judge reported the verdicts determined by a marjority white jury; they convicted two white men of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man, while a third, received guilty verdicts for his actions as an accomplice. Arbery, a twenty-five-year-old Black man, was out jogging in a white neighborhood when he was violently pursued by a retired police officer and his son. They claimed Arbery was responsible for several thefts in the predominantly white neighborhood. Many of us were holding our breaths and exhaling a little more with each guilty count. The week prior, however, we experienced a collective anger as a seventeen-year-old white teenager was acquitted for several ... Read More

  • Phantom Love: Affective Politics of Love in Toni Morrison's Love

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Beauty, love … actually, I think, all the time that I write, I'm writing about love or its absence. Although I don't start out that way … But I think that I still write about the same thing, which is how people relate to one another and miss it or hang on to it … or are tenacious about love."Two Black women living together, bonded in their hate and rage against each other, different in their education and relationships to a man long dead and buried, these are the protagonists of Toni Morrison's novel Love. Their fights, we are told, are intensely physical, "bruising" even, with "hands, feet, teeth, and soaring objects" (2003, 73). They nurture a hatred so fierce that it demands more than physical altercation to ... Read More

  • Young Feminists Redefining Principles of Care in Nigeria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Scholars have extensively debated care in global feminist discourse since the 1980s, with topics ranging from definition to adoption and implementation. In 1982, Gilligan sparked a notable debate by distinguishing the male and female conception of morality as ethics of justice and care, respectively (Gilligan 1982; Maihofer 2017). Situating her arguments in opposition to Kolberg's theory of moral development, she argues that the emphasis on ethics of justice was biased to women's moral reasoning, which often interprets situations through the lens of relationships, compassion, and responsibility to others. With histories of devaluing and relegation, feminist scholars like Fraser (2016) call for a need to ungender ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her exhibition Did They Know We Taught Them How to Dance' Zina Saro-Wiwa asserts: "Environment for me is not just about oil pollution. It is vital to consider emotional, social and spiritual ecosystems in order to transcend the status quo" (Saro-Wiwa 2015). Saro-Wiwa's work, which includes photography, documentary film, short film, and curatorial work, strives to reframe her migration story, as well as the stories of Africans across the continent, considering how geography maps itself onto bodies through feeling and gesture. In this article, I examine Saro-Wiwa's consideration of emotional ecosystems via her representations of love, intimacy, taboo, and pleasure, looking specifically to her 2012/2013 documentary ...

      Abstract: In her essay "The Uses of the Erotic," Audre Lorde reflects on the erotic through a memory involving an elaborate play with margarine. She writes,During World War II, we bought sealed plastic packets of white, uncolored margarine, with a tiny, intense pellet of yellow coloring perched like a topaz just inside the clear skin of the bag. We would leave the margarine out for a while to soften, and then we would pinch the little pellet to break it inside the bag, releasing the rich yellowness into the soft pale mass of margarine. Then taking it carefully between our fingers, we would knead it gently back and forth, over and over, until the color had spread throughout the whole pound bag of margarine, thoroughly ... Read More

      Abstract: In her 2004 experimental video essay a/k/a Mrs. George Gilbert, Coco Fusco stages a Black feminist return to the events that made Angela Davis a global icon of Black struggle and liberation. She does so by composing a moving archive of the texts and images that emerged out of the pursuit, capture, and acquittal of Davis that began on August 7, 1970. On that day, seventeen-year-old Jonathan Jackson entered a San Rafael courtroom to free James McClain, and four people (including Jackson and judge Harold Haley) were killed. Davis met Jonathan while working for the release of his older brother George from the Soledad State Prison. He became one of the bodyguards who protected her against the death threats Davis ...

You watch a tyrant ascend to the highest office of a republic built on the idea of freedom. Your mourning is uncontrollable as you oscillate from rage to grief. You feel your heroes turning over in their graves; is this what they gave their lives for' Maybe your vote would have made a difference, but you are surrounded by Black people thick in their legacy in Kingston.

      Abstract: All the great movements for social justice in our society have strongly emphasized a love ethic.A deep, abiding and unconditional love for Black people lay at the heart of the organizations and movements of the 20th century.When one encounters the term "Black love," thoughts predominantly turn to romantic love. In a heteronormative society, images, literature, and research will take us into the discussions of gender dynamics and roles (Wanzo 2011; Randolph 2018). The archetypes present in society will point us toward both fictional and iconic Black couples (Charleston 2014). Beyond the romantic, we see, read, and hear about Black womanhood and sisterhood, and Black manhood and brotherhood, both in fictional ... Read More

      Abstract: I remember the first time I went into labor. It was as though I was being forced to dance to a new choreography. The pain gripped and twisted the whole of my body, my lower back folding inward, my five-foot body contorting to music only I could hear, moving on a stage only I could access. Each sudden lightning strike of pain reminded me that in that moment, my body was not my own but was shared by the small thing—a girl, they told me, who might have a congenital anomaly, so we were on high alert—pushing inside. My mother, who had given birth multiple times without anesthesia, reminded me of her mother, who had also given birth multiple (nine) times without anesthesia in a foreign country, and told me I was not the ...

Intimacy and friendship accelerate intellectual and spiritual bravery as the artists weave and dart through a conversation that spans death and interruption, the work of the artist and the work of the arts institution, being human and thingly being, and how "what is" also contains "what is possible."

I'm hoping, in presenting the Colored Girls Museum, to others, particularly others, like my Colored Girl self that I offer as a reminder that girlhood is a sacred space. And it deserves protection, praise and grace. And we can give it.Radical love as practiced by Blackgirls is ritualized work that allows us to (re)member our past and (re)imagine our future (Cahill 2021). As Vashti DuBois, founder of the Colored Girls Museum (TCGM) explains in the epigraph above, girlhood is always with us, and intentional loving spaces can ... Read More

In the first image, a young woman stands in the center of the frame with her legs slightly parted and her left hand confidently hooked into her waistband. The other hand is placed on her thigh, fingers spread slightly to draw attention to her long, white, curved acrylic nails.

This vibrant piece was created by artist Lennox Commissiong, who graciously allowed the editors to use it as a frame for the issue.1 He is a self-taught artist, committed to translating elements of Black lives and experiences, creating pieces of influential people of African descent who refuse to bend to the demands of "societal power structures" (Commissiong 2018). Born in St. Vincent, Commissiong, who is local to New York City, moved to Brooklyn when he was fourteen. His early experiences included joining the military, which helped shape his view of the world.

  • Contemporary Love Stories: Love in the Trap, Hookup, and Consumer Culture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When Black philosophers like Cornel West and bell hooks identify contemporary traditions of Black love and freedom, they recognize the traditions as something inherited, fragments of the traditions they used to have, but as traditions that have been snuffed out, scarred, and almost ruined by capitalism, commodification, reification, and materialism (West 1993; hooks 2001). When they articulate their evolution, they do not leave much room to acknowledge ways in which changes in Black love and freedom traditions are generative. They, instead, argue that overall, changes in Black love and freedom traditions have been to the detriment of Black people. This is evident in Cornel West's and bell hooks's analysis of the ...

      Abstract: The Prophets tells a gripping narrative about the struggle to find love in an Empty place. Centered around the queer intimacy and lifeworlds of two enslaved Black teens, Isaiah and Samuel, the novel attempts to reimagine plantation life in the Deep South by reading slavery through the analytics of gender and sexuality. Moving beyond gendered and sexual acts of violence, which is most often how we come to know the sexual lives of those who were enslaved—indeed, the necessity of gendered sexual violence to the making of modernity, the colonial landscape, the plantation, and what Cedric Robinson (1983) describes as the system of racial capitalism is taken seriously in this novel—Robert Jones, Jr. also asks us to ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her 1993 Sisters of the Yam: Black Women and Self-Recovery, Black feminist activist-scholar bell hooks asserts that radical futures will only be possible when Black women live in a world where they experience love. "For such a world to exist," she writes, "racism and all other forms of domination would need to change" (1993, 158). Because love enables us to "transform the present and dream the future," both "the act and art of loving" make possible the obliteration of the patriarchy, homophobia, and other forms of domination (141, 159). Published almost thirty years later, the story of Black queer organizer Alicia Garza summons bell hooks's insights about love. After the 2013 acquittal of Trayvon Martin's ... Read More

      Abstract: Jennifer Nash's newest text Black Feminism Reimagined: After Intersectionality, continues the work of disentangling Black feminism from itself and intersectionality. Building on the work developed in The Black Body in Ecstasy (2016), this text works to transform how we think about Black feminism and intersectionality through love, care work, and surrender. Nash introduces the book by positioning her central concern regarding the intrinsic connection between intersectionality and Black feminism—that Black feminists have conjoined the two through their stewardship, thus limiting the radical imaginings and potential of both Black feminism and intersectionality.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jumping the Broom begins as a matter-of-fact account documenting the origins of the "jumping the broom" marriage tradition, where a couple walks forward and backward over a broomstick to signify their union. Historian Tyler D. Parry focuses on its historical foundations in Europe and the United States before delving into the potential reasons behind its cultural manifestations. Not content with simple explanations about the custom, Parry is concerned with the central question of why, why did some ethnic groups engage in this ritual, and why did it persist' What are the origins of the tradition, and what rich symbolism is contained within the ritual' (2).

      Abstract: I was surprised to recently receive compliments from family members for having completed my doctorate well over twenty years ago. The three email messages followed a picture I sent home of a recent college graduation ceremony. I was in cap and gown. On the other hand, I have sat at academic meetings trying to focus on discussions as I wondered if the people with me ever had to worry about the price of a gallon of milk. Village life is rooted in interdependency. The obligations of older or financially able family members can be overwhelming and endless. My other world poses its own unique challenges. The focus of academic journals and language can appear far removed from everyday struggles to make ends meet by ... Read More
