Quotes by Christina Sharpe  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Living in the wake means living the history and present of terror, from slavery to the present, as the ground of our everyday Black existence; living the historically and geographically dis/continuous but always present and endlessly reinvigorated brutality in, and on, our bodies while even as that terror is visited on our bodies the realities of that terror are erased.”
Christina Sharpe, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being

“How do we memorialize an event that is still ongoing?”
Christina Sharpe, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being

“I want In the Wake to declare that we are Black peoples in the wake with no state or nation to protect us, with no citizenship bound to be respected, and to position us in the modalities of Black life lived in, as, under, despite Black death: to think and be and act from there.”
Christina Sharpe, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being
