The Audacious Book Club: Black Futures Discussion

Black Futures includes a variety of genres of writing, photography, and art, but it also includes social media posts, like tweets about the 10.5 percent fee increase at Johannessburg, South Africa’s University of Witwatersrand (pg. 238) and Carolina Contreras’s explanation of the #YoAmoMiPajo hashtag encouraging Dominican women to embrace their natural hair (pg. 395). Why do you think Drew and Wortham treat social media posts with the same archival importance as other forms of media? How does that make you think anew about your personal archive?
