In Christianity, the Visitation is the visit of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to St. Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John the Baptist, as recorded in the Gospel of Luke, Luke 1:39–56. This occasion celebrates our human will of charity, and the love of neighbor. “The Visitation: Carceral Girlhoods in Black Body Economy” engages Black Girlhood as an archetype of bodily human experience. Explored amidst carceral system spaces like a Miami, FL youth detention site, this talk will investigate an Afro pessimist axis by which the carceral operates, and how such an economy of Black bodies sustains the value of a carceral system, perform, and love, amidst the Black maiden and maternal bodies who uphold it.
