restricted access Introduction

Purpose and Abstract:

With this special issue, we give due to Black geographies scholarship and seminal geographies of race which helped bring about the formal creation of Black geographies as a subfield of the discipline of Geography. We curate a selection of articles from the past quarter century of the Southeastern Geographer, each providing distinct and vital insights into key geographic themes like the production of space, the importance of region, and questions of justice. In this introduction, we draw out some of the key themes and insights of the papers included here, situating the work in relation to the historical developments and scholarly antecedents which gave impetus to Black geographies. Finally, we reflect upon a few of the many generative routes of Black geographies as scholarship and practice.
