This chapter discusses the origins and contemporary conversations taking place in the subfield of Black Geographies. Black Geography is an area of study that is fundamentally informed by the actions and analyses of populations of the African Diaspora. As such, Black Geographies describes a plethora of Blacks’ experiences, from North America, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, North Africa, Europe, and the Mediterranean, among others. Informed by multiple methods and methodologies, Black Geographies works to bridge conversations happening in Geography with those happening in other fields of study, all the while privileging the ways in which populations of African descent make place around the globe.
