The Road to “Liberation” is Paved with Black Male Bodies— #RemakingFerguson: A Tribute to Darren “King D” Seals; Edward Crawford; Deandre Joshua; and Josh Williams
“Through #RemakingFerguson, it is my hope to start a discussion that empowers the grassroots community, by reclaiming the narrative of the Ferguson movement, from colonial academics and bourgeois activists, and giving it back to the people of Ferguson. This will be done by approaching these writings with three objectives:
1. Provide a comparative analysis of the Ferguson Movement and the Black Power movement, along with the colonial tactics used to subvert them.
2. Question the imposition of neocolonial leadership in Black movement spaces, and examine the impact of hyper identity politics/intersectionality on grassroots organizing.
3. Challenge the prevailing corporate media narrative that three Queer Black Women are responsible for the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement, which was clearly born out of the Ferguson Rebellion.”
