About the Contributors
Fired by the active collaboration of Black and Indigenous scholars and activists, this book is an essential reference point to understand of racism and anti-racism in the Americas. Its central claim about the emergence of a new variant of racial capitalism, combining re-energized acism and post-racialism, is powerful, original, and agenda-setting. This book provides key conceptual tools for both understanding and challenging this new and insidious project of racial retrenchment.
— Peter Wade, University of Manchester; coeditor of Cultures of Anti-Racism in Latin America and the Caribbean
The product of sustained and serious collaboration among activists, organic intellectuals, and professional academics, this volume raises fundamental questions about our current racial moment. Its chapters provide illuminating case studies of how to combat structural racism and the recent resurgence of racist thought and action in the Americas.
