We all should be students of the Fat Futures Collective
to explore the complexity of fatness in hopes of moving the needs of bigger bodies from the margins of our radical imagination to the centre. I welcome us to listen to independent philosopher Tassiana Willis who makes their theories on the state’s subjection of fat darker skinned femmes accessible to the masses through their Instagram @ChubbyGoddess
. And we must commune in the artistry and everyday living of fat Black artists like Jazmine “Da K.O.S.” Walker
, Dom The Furious
, and Kezia Harrell
. These artists show us that liberation isn’t always a struggle. Specifically, the fat Black artist shows us that we are entitled to liberation and it can be actualised through a paintbrush, a twerk, a story, a self portrait, or rest. And if that is true for us, it can certainly be true for you too.
