*Black Feminist Thought*


Preface:* “Be A Mystery”: (The Infinity of) Black Feminist Thought*

Sometimes, even those of us who have organized our entire lives around the
transformative possibilities of Black feminist thought can sit back in
wonder at the expansiveness of this intergenerational transnational
practice. This special issue takes a moment to imbibe where we have been,
where we are, and where we have yet to journey. The contributors to this
special issue on, or more precisely, *of *Black feminist thought find Black
feminist thinking in a wide range of times, places, and forms. Each of the
contributors invites us to bear witness in a distinct way to the pushes and
pulls of critical engagement with Black feminist thought.

The range of topics included in this special issue encapsulates the breadth
of this interdisciplinary, transnational, multimodal, and intergenerational
practice. Given the seemingly infinite nodes and entry points of Black
feminist thought, it is befitting that this issue coheres because of an
unboundedness and porousness among the pieces. The art essays, articles,
field reviews, and conversations converse, dance, and harmonize with one
another. What unfolds on these pages is a queerly motherful offering to the
Black feminist tradition....
