This chapter uses talk from women to show how they construct themselves as radically other within stories of identification/dis-identification with Blackness. They are not powerless in the face of the abjection of racism and chromatism but construct counter-discourses of Black womanhood. Through this identity repositioning enabled by counter discourses, the women create new addressivities as they perform themselves as 'the same Black woman but different'. The chapter explores the place of abjection in hybridity. Looking at the talk as instances of a hybridity of the everyday in which a layering of voices, abjection and translation enables performative acts to arise, returns us to the possibility for the third space of hybridity within conversations. The chapter focuses on extracts of talk which look at the impact of shade on women's lives. Resisting Black skin through critical ontologies of the self produces different addresses in conversations.
