The Black Book Vol. VI: Dust Tracks: Black People on the Move

Black people’s travel and mobility, from a daily commute or relocation for work, to short trips or just a walk in their own city, are often observed with incredulity, suspicion, or joy, depending on who’s looking. Somehow black people are never where they are supposed to be. But where is that, exactly? Using a mix of sources—visual art, music, literature, film, and more—Tisa Bryant and Ernest Hardy trace and reflect on black movement both extraordinary and mundane.
