To be really free is to be spatially free | Ep 9 | REIMAGINING BLACKNESS & ARCHITECTURE

What does liberation look like? Architect Mario Gooden discusses his project “The Refusal of Space” and the ongoing histories of Black people in Nashville, Tennessee who occupied the city’s spaces, demanded freedom, and taught us that liberation is a spatial practice.
