Readings in Afropessimism

This reading group is designed around the readings that frequently get pooled together under the heading of “Afropessimism”, including the works of Saidiya Hartman, Jared Sexton, and Frank Wilderson. The group is dedicated to reading the texts that influence these authors, the authors themselves, and their critics in an attempt to best engage with this contemporary, contentious strand of racial theorization.
