Drama. Poetry. African & African American Studies. Translated by Raquel Almazan, Amauta M. Firmino, Desiree Hable, Roman Kané, and Juta Keenan. THE IMMEASURABLE WANT OF LIGHT is a collection of many short plays drawn from Mubashshir's two-year personal practice of writing a play a day to capture and express the ever-shifting perspective of living in black skin. Inspired by Chris Ofili's Afro Muses, each play is distinct in subject, form and tone, presenting a constellation of theatrical portraits.
