I am grateful to the Rainbow Coalition at RIAS, for planting the seeds that grew into this project, for helping me cultivate the persistent and disciplined practice of self-trust, self-care, and courage necessary to listen and hear my own voice. I am thankful to Ross A. Gay for listening to the entirety of this paper, out loud, and for being a careful interlocutor. Finally, I am indebted to the editors of this volume, Rumee Ahmed and Anver Emon for their intellectual and moral support, which was indispensible for the writing of this chapter.
