A call to action,
to scholarship,
to reparations.

How do we rupture the continuum of Extractivism,
which spans from colonial genocide and slavery
to climate change?

We get radical.1

We get to the root.
Africa is humanity’s root.
Through her Black diaspora,
she seeds resistance to extractive ecologies
of plantations and penitentiaries.

We break down boundaries
of geopolitical borders and NIMBY delusions
that segregate humanity and hypoxify existence.
We open portals to ecological reparations.

1. Radical / rad-i-kuhl / adj. Of or going to the root or origin.
