Michael J. Myers II is from Buffalo, New York. A Ph.D. recipient in the Department of African
American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Michael’s dissertation is a
multifaceted and multilayered experimental storytelling project in Black Studies. Thinking with
the writings of Sylvia Wynter, Michael examines the ways in which violent black rebellion
intervenes – in the form of a question mark – to challenge our current epistemological socio-
politico-juridical order and, simultaneously and concomitantly, to postulate different possibilities
and potentialities of being.
