As The Liminal Loop launches in this New Year, readers will be exposed to the poetry and reflections of Phil Allen, Jr., writing that describes the liminal reality of being black in America:
Being in this in-between space full of life
Being seen in this space
Being heard in this space
Being beautiful in this space
Being creative in this space
Being black in this space
This is the space where Negro spirituals were born
– from Unknownland, by Phil Allen, Jr.

I like it. For most of us, liminal space seems to be thought of as temporary, mostly. But for people of color, liminality seems to have been a constant since about 1619, with no end in sight.
