In this year marking the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation, Transition celebrates over four hundred years of Black presence in Canada.

In issue 124, “Writing Black Canadas,” we highlight Rinaldo Walcott’s observation that “Black Canada is not one thing. It’s multiple moments of Blackness. It’s multiple relations to the nation space. It’s multiple points of arrival. It’s a set of different histories.” Guest editors Phanuel Antwi and David Chariandy present glimpses of a robust living archive of Black Canadian writing, highlighting critical thought, cultural memory, formal innovation, and radical intimacy that channels the global sweep of the diaspora. Contributors include Dionne Brand, George Elliott Clarke, Afua Cooper, Juliane Okot Bitek, Ian Williams, Wayde Compton, H. Nigel Thomas, M. NourbeSe Philip, and cover artist Sandra Brewster.

Profiles of two formidable women of letters—Toni Morrison and Toi Derricotte—round out the issue, while works of short fiction by Olufunke Ogundimu and Christian Ojochegbe Jacob speak again to the theme of Fear. In this issue, we also honor the memory of F. Abiola Irele—former Transition editor and renowned scholar of francophone African and Caribbean literature—with tributes from colleagues and admirers.
