Black Networked Resistance: Out Now!

"Black Networked Resistance is a unique and timely contribution to a growing treasure trove of scholarship on Black everyday online life. Raven Maragh-Lloyd's sensitive, insightful, and eminently useful readings demonstrate the nuanced 'hows' of networked resistance. The case studies in this book are entirely fresh, as is Maragh-Lloyd's voice."

—Ralina Joseph, Professor of Race and Communication at the University of Washington, Seattle

"A model of nuanced and historically grounded research. Maragh-Lloyd deftly navigates tensions between resistance and joy in this examination of Black community, care, and humor across digital platforms. Black Networked Resistance breaks new ground in Black digital studies, positioning Black social media practices in rich historical traditions to reveal the creativity and inventiveness of Black Americans online."

—Sarah Florini, Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies at Arizona State University
