If you read or listened to the work we presented in our last issue you would know that bodies were on our mind. The Embodied Language issue examined “different facets of the ongoing negotiations that Black bodies undertake within inhospitable spaces” with a mix of personal essay, spoken word poetry and sound collage; it is an introspective and confrontational mix.  

 

We’re not quite so confrontational this time around. At least I don’t think so. This issue has its moments but it is, I think, a more light hearted affair. Actually, light hearted probably isn’t entirely accurate either but, tonally speaking, it’s a little…less…heavy.

from the Editor

Anyway, in what we’re calling the Control/Body Politic issue, Natassia Morris follows up The Case for Emancipated Waistlines–published in our Welcome Back Issue–with The Politics of Wining Alone, which addresses the pressures and politics Caribbean women’s bodies face while ‘trowin’ waist’. There’s also a little poetry thrown in the mix, as well as the return of Nandie Myers on another episode of the Oxtail and Salt Beef podcast. You should tune in to that conversation to find out what the Politics of Wining Alone has to do with Bridgerton.
