In the introduction, the editors present the history and implications of the Black Geographies discipline. In setting up the stakes for Black Geographies, the editors argue for the nonsingularity and nonuniversality of Blackness, its local and global reproduction through processes of circulation and diasporic routes, and the interplay of material and poetic processes. The introduction presents the epistemological challenges posed by Black Geographic thought to foundational categories such as space, scale, science, politics, and empire and how they draw attention to praxis to offer newer considerations of methodological and theoretical practice that emerges from the complex process of Black life.
