Abstract

In her article, “Coalition Politics: Turning the Century,” Bernice Johnson Reagon advocates for leaving a legacy of one’s liberatory praxis when she writes:

The thing that must survive you is not just the record of your practice, but the principles that are the basis of your practice. If in the future, somebody is gonna use that song I sang, they’re gonna have to strip it or at least shift it. I’m glad the principle is there for others to build upon.

(2000 [1983]: 366)
