Meditation on Abolition

In Meditation on Abolition, Ashon Crawley discusses how the spiritual community of his youth, Blackpentecostalism, gave him a way into abolition as a practice of concern, as a practice of care. He demonstrates that any community formation or institutional practice has within the capacity to be disrupted by the liberative energies of abolitionist practice. It can be disrupted when we commit daily to enacting abolition—not just with regard to incarceration but in all our relationships, friendships, comraderly engagements. When practiced daily, in the mundane, abolition can become the reflexive posture from which to sense the world and act with, in and through it.
