About this dissertation fellowship

This project brings Afropessimism, critical black feminism, black nihilism into productive conversation with womanist, black liberation, and black practical theology. The project theorizes anti black violence as an onto-theological and world-making undertaking. Black interiority is lost on this world even as it is the sight where black faith is born. The constructive aim of the project is to identify the interior resources that persist within blackness as it suffers an anti-black world.
