    I draw on John Dewey to understand hope as the felt sense of possibility in the world. To be hopeful, therefore, is to have a sense of positive possibility; hoplessness is a sense of restricted possibility or restricted capacity to make the possible actual.

    Microaggression causes epistemic harm to marginalized subjects. They have cumulative effects that diminish the epistemic confidence of the subject. Communities, I argue, can help mitigate such harms by fostering the subject's epistemic confidence and providing her with hope.
