Dying to Eat? Black Food Geographies of Slow Violence and Resilience

How are Black food geographies, both geographies of emotional slow violence and resilience?

Emphasis on individual behaviors can overlook how a felt sense of the food landscape matters (Hayes-Conroyand Hayes Conroy 2016). Through the frame of slow violence and racial trauma, this research article considers racial surveillance in the context of Black food geographies.
