The essay "The Anarchism of Blackness" appeared in issue #5 of ROAR Magazine this April (as well as on ROAR's website: It made a splash and was reposted and shared widely. The authors responded favorably to the idea of expanding the essay into a book. The book is presented as a complement to titles like From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation (Haymarket, 2016) and other contemporary titles looking at liberation from a Black perspective. As Black as Resistance isn't an "anarchist" book in the sense of its message being self-marginalizing. We think the tone and lessons will resonate far and wide.
