In lieu of an abstract, below is an excerpt of the work:
We write in the context of the dual pandemics of COVID-19 and racial injustice, and the wave of tensions tied to the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Economic inequality, antiBlack and antiIndigenous violence, food and housing insecurity, immigrant children in cages, social disconnection and the deterioration of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being signal the effects of this historical moment. For many Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), and other marginalized communities, these dual pandemics have only further brought to light that they have been in states of unwellness for centuries. And yet, Marc Lamont Hill (2020) recently reminded us, “we are still here.” The question is how? How, in the midst of material, social and health conditions that leave BIPOC vulnerable to premature death (Gilmore, 2007, 2017) do people continue to do more than survive (Love, 2019)?
