Background: How do you tell the story of white supremacy, racial capitalism, settler colonialism, transatlantic chattel slavery, and tell a story that cares for BIPOC (Black, indigenous, and people of color) lives? A story that honors the lives of those who were not supposed to survive, no less thrive? Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other is a work that successfully embodies such a practice of care amid precarity. While the novel ends with an epilogue, we know, as scholars of Black studies, that the Black diaspora has not ended and that many of the stories of its diverse kin have yet to be told.
