Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the same horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men. Now, women forget all those things they don’t want to remember, and remember everything they don’t want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.”
~ Zora Neale Hurston
Greetings! I am Renée Alexander Craft. I am a performance studies trained black feminist writer, scholar, and educator interested in the power of creativity and imagination to build community, inspire collective action in the service of social justice, and call new futures into being by troubling the fault lines of structural domination until they break–even if only temporarily or partially so. I invite you to click below to learn more about my teaching, research and creative projects.
