This essay examines the significance of the black radical tradition within the context of postcolonial geopolitics, dynamics most commonly associated with neoliberal late global and racial capitalism that have resulted in significant demographic shifts and also increased collisions between local histories and global conditions of violent dispossession. Using this local-global conjuncture, this essay peruses how a black radical tradition of critique in the U.S. South has been mobilized as a pillar from or through which Latina/o lives matter more in that region’s political climate and discourse regarding race and racism.
