Note From Asiya Wadud:
This essay is written in conversation with the many voices from The Loophole of Retreat, which Tina M. Campt, Saidiya Hartman, and Simone Leigh convened at the Guggenheim Museum on April 27, 2019. Many threads of conversations from the Danspace Project Voice & Body Research Group are also resonant in this piece, and ever-always, the work of Okwui Okpokwasili.
