Spill(ing) Over The Edges — Accounts of Black Fugitive Women

  • Lea Hülsen


Alexis Pauline Gumbs' Spill is experimental and poetic in its rejection of the classic essaystyle. From different perspectives, Spill tells the story of black fugitive women and their struggle for independence. Different female narrative and lyrical voices from various backgrounds deal with anti-black violence and racism in their everyday lives. They go back to the enslavement of black people, tracing its effects to black women's lives nowadays. The book is dedicated to Hortense J. Spillers' Black, White, and in Colour and invites the reader to reread and rethink Spillers' work.
