Chapter 4 focuses on Black girls’ relationships to time. It takes an in-depth look at Black girls and nonbinary teens who use their social media profiles as an integral part of their activist work: Eva Oleita and Ama Russell of Black Lives Matter in All Capacities (BLMIAC), Marley Dias of #1000BlackGirlBooks, and the curators of the Art Hoe Collective. These three activist efforts encapsulate the key tenets of Black time and help expound upon the relationship between BGA, Black girls’ digital practices, and time. The chapter argues that Black girl autopoetics, as it manifests in Black girls’ digital activism, undermines temporal dispossession and equips Black girls with the agency to reclaim, make, and keep time.
