Where Pathways Meet

by a.k. payne

Where Pathways Meet follows Minnie and Dwight, a Black couple in what could be 1960s America, on their mission to create a new life on another planet. This piece journeys through past, present and future to pose the question: How do we seek and imagine freedom for ourselves as Black people in the Diaspora?
