This anthology brings together a survey of anti-Blackness covering a variety of philosophical, theoretical, and methodological frameworks, including analyzing anti-Blackness in pre-colonial Korea, its fundamentality to conceptions of Latinx identity, and the modes of anti-Blackness specific to misogynoir. The contributors provide many different points to continue learning from, emphasizing the global phenomenon of anti-Blackness as integral to constructing and maintaining our notions of "human" and modernity. It's a really thorough and thoughtful volume that I believe is relevant to everyone!
