The final chapter then moves from the healing power of refusal to other radical propositions of what could be. By attuning to the poetic register, the chapter explores alternative ways of seeing and speaking Black survival. Through an analysis of visionary play, of performance and prophecy, and of the dreamworlds of interpersonal intimacy, this chapter interrogates the healing power of future worlding within antiblack regimes. For people of African descent, it is an audacious and emboldened notion to envisage a collective future. But a new discourse is emerging in Congo, which questions and affirms how Congolese will survive in the future, not if they will. The final chapter is devoted to this epistemology of Black/Congolese aliveness.
