24. Storytelling While Black and Female: Conjuring Beautiful Experiments in Past and Future Worlds
Play episode · 1 hr 7 min
On this episode, Kimberlé Crenshaw is joined by the revolutionary and genre-defying writers N.K Jemisin and Saidiya Hartman, whose work demands a radical reimagination of our present by archiving and writing the violence of the past into imaginations of a limitless future. By inserting Black women into narrative spaces that they have largely been written out of, these women illustrate first hand how we can resist narrative erasure and become the authors of our own stories.

With:


SAIDIYA HARTMAN - Professor and scholar of African American literature and history, Columbia University; Author of Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments; 2019 MacArthur Fellow


N.K. JEMISIN - Science fiction and fantasy writer; Author of the Broken Earth series, the Inheritance Trilogy, and the Dreamblood Duology; Winner of 3 Hugo Awards

Hosted by Kimberlé Crenshaw (@sandylocks)

Produced and Edited by Julia Sharpe-Levine

Additional support provided by the African American Policy Forum

Saying Goodbye to Season 5
On November 13th, 2019, we started Season 5 of this podcast. Our definition of "season" has pretty much always just meant as many episodes as we can make before we need a break, and we haven't really taken a break since last November. This episode, the 23rd of the season is admittedly a bit of self-referential navel gazing, but I wanted to take just a bit of your time to wrap up the season before we, finally, take a break. It is an all-volunteer team that helps put these episodes together. From Molly, who makes our transcripts, to Courtney Epton, who has done all the visuals to promote these episodes, to Ali, Bridget, Anna, Susan and others, who provide feedback, and help me think through these topics, this podcast wouldn't be what it is without the entire team. And that team deserves a break. If you are able, we'd be eternally grateful for your financial support, by joining our Patreon, or going to the Integrated Schools website and clicking "donate." While we're away, please check out past episodes, if you haven't yet, and stay in touch on social media or by sending us an email. And please, VOTE!!

Prayer Edition | Day 14 | Richard Allen
Our lives are boundless. I know it. I pray that we break free of the bondage of limiting thoughts.  And dream of all possibilities ...of our highest callings.  Divine assignments.  Wildest, most audacious dreams. "I'm calling you higher.  There is more that I require of thee. Will your heart and soul say yes?  I'm calling you out of your dry places. Come on up a little higher. I predestined you before the world began.  Will your heart and soul say yes?" (Such a powerful song and 14-minute morning meditation by Shekinah Glory.) *Spiritual Warrior of the Day:* Richard Allen said yes. “The bands of bondage were so strong that no way appeared for my release: yet at times a hope arose in my heart that a way would open for it.” Even as an enslaved man, he said yes. He worked tirelessly, paid the price for his own freedom, bought land for his dream, and in 1794, built the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME). It would become the first independent black denomination in the United States. He didn't stop there.  He founded The Free Africa Society, protested the use of slave labor, radically organized Black dollars, taught literacy, and organized politically. He is our "Founding Father" and today we honor his life. About the calling on his life, Richard Allen said this. "I didn't accept it. I received it." It's time to say yes y'all. Join GirlTrek’s Black History Bootcamp - The Prayer Edition at blackhistorybootcamp.com to receive specially curated emails with prayers, survival tips, speeches + dedicated songs to listen to for each episode. Together we will discover the stories of 21 spiritual warriors. Disclaimer: We do not own the rights to the music played during this broadcast.
