Improvising While Black (IWB): Afropessimist Musings on Black Bodies in Revolt

This reading group will focus on short passages, from non-fiction, fiction and poetry that deal with themes of Black death and revolt. What is a black body in a continual state of revolt? How is refusal a marker of resistance? What is the creative potential of a body in revolt?


Black, Indigenous & POC queer trans, gnc & non binary folks are encouraged to take a seat at the table & will be centered in these discussions.
