“Name Yourself”: Marronage and the Unmaking of Black Educational Futures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


In this conceptual essay, I trouble the notion of Black educational futures as something that can be constructed in the frameworks of western thought. Instead, the lesson on revolution teaches marronage, which fundamentally changes the question "What are the futures of Black education," to one of praxis that asks, "What is the sound, look, feeling, and doing of Black learning?" Here, I take up marronage, as a speculative method to examine the makings of Black learning.
