Abstract

This article investigates how hauntology provides an entry into the ways relationships, forged out of trauma and anger, give way to Black women’s political actions. Anger, resulting from race-gender trauma, gives voice to the dead allowing them to speak in the here and now. Said anger can provide a vehicle to work through collective trauma and in my case, speak to Black women’s experiences with democracy. In this article I bring together hauntology, anger, and Black feminist praxis as a way of showing how hauntological relationships allow for an expression of intergenerational narratives of trauma and a critique of the state and state-centered violence, and offer a way for healing and achieving justice.
