Abstract

Abstract:

In this essay, I examine how the Black digital diaspora have found belonging online by imagining intimate kinships with one another. Building on my personal experiences of following and engaging with the popular Instagram archive, @BlackArchives.co, I offer the term digital diasporic intimacy to describe the ways that the Black diaspora have used social media to come together and creatively participate in the construction of online communities.
