Summary: This dissertation has been an exercise of escrevivência [live-writing] aimed at
analyzing the experiences of black periphery women. We resorted to the
interseccionality paradigm as a methodological tool to analyze the ways race,
gender and class oppression are produced as well as our strategies to fight them.
Cereus, Sianinha, Repudia, Alfinete, Raposa, Amendoim and Flor de Maio are
the protagonists who shared their recollections with us. The field research was
carried out during chat sessions in three Social Service Reference Centers
[Centros de Referência de Assistência Social] in the capital of Espírito Santo,
Vitória, situated on Território do Bem, one of the periphery regions in the city
made up by seven neighbourhoods, namely, Penha, Engenharia, Consolação,
Bonfim, Floresta, São Benedito and Jaburu. The results suggest that images of
control are used as a significant violence production tool as well as its
naturalization against black women through violent naturalizing discourses that
affect their bodies. Another notion inscribed in our analyses, necropolitics
crosscuts public institutions and the social fabric through policies targeted at
killing black bodies. We draw attention to the resistance exercises black periphery
women did and which are built upon from this intersection point and forges
strategies of struggle against several forms of violence, by cracking the very
surfaces of oppression producing machines.
Keywords: Intersecctionality; Escrevivência [live-writing]; Necropolitics; Black
