BOOK: Wright on the Physics of the Middle Passage

Wright, Michelle M. Physics of Blackness: Beyond the Middle Passage Epistemology. Minneapolis: Univ Of Minnesota Press, 2015.

via University of Minnesota Press:

“Reveals how assumptions we make about time and space inhibit more inclusive definitions of Blackness.

What does it mean to be Black? If Blackness is not biological in origin but socially and discursively constructed, does the meaning of Blackness change over time and space? In Physics of Blackness: Beyond the Middle Passage Epistemology, Michelle M. Wright argues that although we often explicitly define Blackness as a “what,” it in fact always operates as a “when” and a “where.””
