Issue 01: Emergence
Feed Black Futures
with Ali Anderson
The theme of SALIMA’s first issue is emergence. It’s a noun that goes back to the Latin root emergere, meaning "bring to light". It can mean the revealing of something that was once hidden, or something rising to the surface. One may think of this in the literal sense or more metaphorically.
Emergence is how we change, how we expand, how we grow. What are the small ways we are changing & intentionally growing our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for? How do we allow the long defunct systems & ways of being to burn & what do we create in their place? With our world falling apart, how do we shape this change?*
