Critical Commentary

This essay by Katherine McKittrick explores plantation geographies. In drawing specific attention to the ways past configurations of the plantation are recast in post-slave urban contexts, the discussion signals the links between black dispossession and geography, while also considering how assertions of decolonial practices, black life, and black futures are embedded in place.
