The conclusion expounds a theory of afro-fabulative poetics of memory through a discussion of the concept of the crypt in the psychoanalysis of Torok and Abraham, as interpreted through the performance and film work of artist Geo Wyeth. Critical and creative fabulation is a means of decrypting blackness while preserving opacity.
