Not Enough Human: At the Scenes of Indigenous and Black Dispossession
Preview not available


This article is a critical interrogation of the modern human and its utility in the pursuit of justice for Indigenous and Black people. Stephanie Latty and Megan Scribe, with Alena Peters and Anthony Morgan, draw on three events, some of which are still unfolding: an inquest into the violent and suspicious deaths of seven Indigenous youth in Thunder Bay, Ontario; the lead poisoning via the water supply of the mostly Black residents of Flint, Michigan; and a Human Rights Day event co-organized by the authors of this article. The article attends to the interconnectedness of settler colonialism and anti-Black racism in white settler societies and draws attention to the manner in which these systems configure humanity, arguing that justice is withheld from those deemed not human enough.
