Excerpt from *A Billion Black Anthropocenes or None*, 2018

by Kathryn Yusoff. This text takes as its basis the proposed geological epoch dating from the start of significant human impacts on Earth’s geology and ecosystems known as the Anthropocene. Connecting Black feminist theory, geography, and the earth sciences, Yusoff argues the very discipline of geology is rooted in the extractive economies of colonialism and slavery. She is Professor of Inhuman Geography at Queen Mary University of London.
