Dr. James honors the legacy of communities who have fought for liberation while examining international resistance to white supremacy, and the new bones of solidarity while also questioning how social movements get co-opted by philanthropic funders and academia.

In New Bones Dr. James writes, “Prison is the most tangible domestic war zone. War zones are destabilizing. The Attica rebellion, on this its fiftieth anniversary, exemplifies the torturous growth of new bones by Captive Maternals. Those in Attica, an ungendered mass of captives (not all identified as male although the state classified them as such), maintained the prison structure as trustees and laborers.”
