S4 Ep:16 Geography is Colonial w/ Francisca Rockey
The study of geography implies that the space we exist in is natural. However, colonialism, capitalism and cisheteropatriarchy have spatially engineered the current world. Examples of this include borders, limited access to green space, redlining, food apartheids and sacrifice zones. Francisca Rockey, founder of Black Geographers, speaks to Rev Yearwood about the role of geography in politics, how colonial the discipline is, and allies taking up space.
