Black Ecologies proposes the concept of Black Ecologies as a “resistance to extractive ecologies across the colonial-capitalist world.” Recognizing our world is at a crossroads, Black Ecologies is a multigenerational, multidimensional dialogue and a reminder that Black resistance is always already tending to other ecologies of being(s).
Black Ecologies is a call for scholarship, reading, and action to constellate Black diasporic visions of ecological reparations for a segregated planet, featuring contributions by Simone + Trynne Delaney, Thuli Gamedze, J. Drew Lanham, K’eguro Macharia, Amber Jamila Musser, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Romy Opperman, Danielle Purifoy, and Lisandro Suriel.
Black Ecologies is designed by Untitled, a design and curatorial agency based in Marrakech, Morocco. Their proposition draws inspiration from indigenous knowledge systems – most precisely African fractals – not only as geometric figures and forms, but also as a tool to think and produce design principles. The publication is printed by KOPA on recycled paper without plastic coating.
