The introduction begins with a description of Goma, a cosmopolitan border town in eastern Congo that serves as the setting for the book. It then moves on to introduce the theoretical underpinnings of the book. Bringing Congolese history together with Black feminist and race scholarship, it opens an argument connecting chronic, repetitive violence in eastern Congo to antiblack governance in the world of Man. It then describes the methodology of the book, how and by whom this archive of possibilities of healing and repair in eastern Congo was created. Finally, it concludes with a description of the interludes and an outline of the chapters that follow.
