In the Black Geographies issue, authors roller skate to claim space and joy, examine the role of the King James Version of the Bible in Black placemaking and meaning-making, mine the pages of literary geographer Gloria Naylor, and more. As guest editor Danielle Purifoy writes, "Black geographies urges us to reflect on, retrieve, and rebuild our relationships to our ecosystems and to each other that are integral to our thriving."
