Dr. Bayo Akomolafe is a public intellectual, poet, professor, life partner with Ije Clement-Akomolafe, and father ‘to/with’ Alethea Aanya and Kyah Abayomi. As executive director and chief curator at The Emergence Network, Bayo brings together communities of activists and leaders dedicated to new/awkward posthumanist trajectories of transformation, while rejecting outdated human-centric assumptions of how to affect change. The convener of the concepts of ‘postactivism,’ ‘transraciality,’ and ‘ontofugitivity,’ Bayo is a widely celebrated international speaker, teacher, essayist, and author of two books: These Wilds Beyond our Fences: Letters to My Daughter on Humanity’s Search for Home (North Atlantic Books) and We Will Tell our Own Story: The Lions of Africa Speak. He is also host of the online postactivist course, We Will Dance with Mountains.
