Abstract

This thesis analyzes the connecting political, spatial, and spiritual aims of Black activists in 1990s Montreal. I investigate how they worked at reconfiguring the Black community in Montreal against the East/West language divide. I also examine how the White anti-racist Left developed anti- Black Islamophobic discourses against radical Black activists who were Muslim and/or associated with Islam. Lastly, I pay particular attention to the role of spirituality in the visions that radical Black activists had for the Black community in Montreal. This research offers us a way to understand how Black geographies emerge and how they exceed geographies of domination. It seeks to contribute to a body of literature in Black geography through an investigation of how Black radical organizing reimagines and transforms space and place.
