Abstract

This article will continue Jose Medina’s work on “resistant imaginations” by developing the concepts of “internal resistant imagination” and “external resistant imagination” through readings of Assata Shakur’s and Mamphela Ramphele’s autobiographies. By introducing the problem of location and its relation to race it will show that one’s geographical location affects their location in relation to hegemonic imaginations. This in turn requires different strategies of resistance. Using Medina’s work this article will argue that Shakur and Ramphele explore these two different avenues for undoing harmful truths within racist and sexist hegemonic imaginaries.
