This chapter discusses Black geographies revealed through abolitionist print records from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It focuses on early feminist geographic discourses and civics, arguing that author-activists such as Nancy Gardner Prince, Maria Stewart, and Pauline Hopkins wrote the ramp to new imaginations of history. The chapter claims that Black narratives extended material spaces and projected new sites of possibility. Discourse and place-making can be mutually constitutive. Topics examined include Caribbean anticolonial ecologies and discursive countercartographies.
