We are bearing witness to a profound moment in black culture, Aperture shows - Los Angeles Times
“First, in general, just even the idea of storytelling — the aesthetics, the accent, and the structure of storytelling still has to operate in the empire of this Eurocentric America. America is really European aesthetics.

Context is like a social compass. It guides our politics, our reasoning, our decisions to get mad at bad articles online, but its function in storytelling is a little less strict. So as to prevent looking like an idiot, we demand context to understand why things happen. Crucially, though, it’s not always an artist’s job to provide this for an audience.

On Mourning Your Former Selves - Original Essay by Morgan Jerkins
I have disturbed myself: this is how I know that I have accomplished something grand. I have unraveled a part of myself, and my emotional and physiological responses demonstrate that what I have written is not trivial. And therefore, the title seems fitting: This is (in fact) my undoing.
