“Who sings for the mangled archive? The discarded tome? Why are things most considered precious when thrown into crisis? The pieces are everywhere. These questions are everywhere. We are trying to put it all back together, but we know that the image will never be the same.” —Rikki Byrd, “I Cannot See It For the Trees,” Fashioning the Self, Vol.2

Fashioning the Self, Vol 2 is a limited edition magazine and the second publication produced by Jonathan Michael Square’s digital humanities project Fashioning the Self in Slavery and Freedom. Primarily focusing on the intersections between slavery and fashion and the sartorial ingenuity of enslaved peoples, the magazine serves as a starting place for investigating broader issues of race, identity, and equity as they relate to fashion and “present-day identities of people of African descent.” An important and very welcome addition to conversations on de-colonizing fashion and fashion history, research and education.
