"In our inaugural episode, I sit down with Mpho Matsipa, an educator, researcher, and curator based in South Africa. We discuss what she calls “thinking from blackness” and other epistemes for imagining freedom through expanding grammars of representation. We revisit her ongoing curatorial project, African Mobilities, to reflect on the generative dimensions of race. " - Mxolisi Makhubo DR.
