Chapter 4 takes up this emphasis on Black feminism as a worldmaking politics and practice in order to center the methods of WWAV’s rebuilding after the fire: in relationship, in space, in time. There are two levels to this tracing: first, Deon and Shaquita’s constant work on the road to speak WWAV’s fire dreams nationally and globally; and second, the steady reconfiguration by staff and partners of WWAV’s New Orleans–based work in and for community. By tacking back and forth between these scales constantly, this chapter shows the dynamism of fire dreams: the dreams long sheltered at WWAV were stoked on the ground and on the international stage, in and through movements for liberation rising up worldwide. These multiple registers of doing the work steadily refined, reconfigured, and at times transformed the futures being imagined.
