Summary

This chapter puts Marxist geography in dialogue with scholarship in critical ethnic studies in order to provide a critical basis for studying the urban geographies of racial capitalism. It focuses on work in black, Chicanx, and indigenous studies that has nuanced and extended the “spatial turn” introduced by scholars such as David Harvey, Neil Smith, Doreen Massey, and Cindi Katz. Discussions of gendered black geographies (Sylvia Wynter, Katherine McKittrick, and Rashad Shabazz), indigenous geographies (Laura Furlan), and Latinx geographies (Mary Pat Brady, Raúl Homero Villa) contextualize the stakes of urban literature by black, Chicanx, and indigenous authors such as Marita Bonner, Danez Smith, Helena María Viramontes, and Tommy Orange.
