Black digital practice holds space for Black life to be seen without the rancor of the voyeur, appreciated without the demand for consumption. What makes this rich and deep intellectual work so powerful is the way it challenges the container of West and Western thought. This talk discusses black digital practice and the ways black theory, black thought, and black study can remake our engagement with the digital, offering terrestrial and extraterrestial reformulations of being.
