Jayy Dodd wraps up our nominees from the annual essay series. Their work, "The Impossible Outside (Or, A Zumbi's Autopsy)" is a smart discussion of the experience of the Black body—"fashioned out of a colonial mutilation of humanity", where is it safe?, the criminality of Black joy, Zumbi as a metaphor.
This essay seems especially relevant considering events from this year both before and after the election. We are thankful for the opportunity to share Jayy's work!
