Black Geographies: Berkeley Black Geographies

What is the Berkeley Black Geographies Project (BBGP)?

Berkeley Black Geographies is committed to the material study of Black life and guided by the principal assertion that Blackness cannot be reduced to cultural abstraction or mere corporeal phenomena. Geography' is pursued as a productive analytic capable of exploring, examining, and determining the lived experiences of Blackness, its conceptual limits, and theoretical purchase. BBG approaches Blackness as an analytical modality that gives insight and shape to the concepts and processes of spatial formation. Race and place are understood as mutually constituted and that operationally linked and social and political processes are inherently determined by spatial relations that can never be fully understood without a racial (understood as Black) analysis.
