About I'Nasah

*waves hi*

I’m I’Nasah, though there’s a good chance you know me primarily as @so_treu. I've been a (sometimes semi-professional) loudmouth on the internet since around 2009 or so. You can usually find me running my mouth/writing excessively about some combo of: Blackness, afro-pessimism, the Black South, hoodoo and vodou, Black history, the politics of Black culturemisogynoir in online spaces, dance and music history, Leftist politics, and whatever else captures my fancy, honestly.

You might also have caught my speech at SRCCON:POWER conference back in December ‘18, or maybe you recently read about my role in the anti-troll social media campaign #YourSlipIsShowing.

And! I spend a decent amount of my digital life curating archival spaces. I've curated blogs on radical Black politics, Black art, and diasporic African spiritualities, and across platforms I’ve made it a point to make educational material on my topics(mostly primary and secondary resources) accessible to my readers, cause ethical citational practices is a nonnegotiable practice, yo.

In short, I've officially spent a decade creating a body of interdisciplinary work around Blackness, politics and performance, culture and communication, digital humanities and maroon networks of knowledge, and I want to keep doing it! I wanna create zines and chapbooks and online classes, I want to continues to make resources available to whoever is interested, and I want to help us think through alternatives to the death eater society that currently reigns. Your support helps me do all of this, if only by helping me to stay alive to do it. Black women are frequently expected to give up the best of ourselves for free or damn near; I’m happy to offer a way for folks to break this (slavery-based) cycle of exploitation and erasure. I want to continue to offer my work to the world on my terms, and your material support will allow me to do just that. Black women are frequently expected to give up the best of ourselves for free or damn near; I’m happy to offer a way for folks to break this (slavery-based) cycle of exploitation and erasure.

In closing: I’m so grateful for the persistence of community. I’m so grateful for the persistence of Blackness. I’m so grateful I get to continue to share this journey with y’all.

Thank you.

I would be able to more easily meet financial/life obligations, which would allow me to spend more time creating for others and for myself.
