Eating While Black: Food Shaming and Race in America by Psyche Williams-Forson

“Everybody eats, so what’s political about eating? After reading Eating While Black, the answer is clear: everything.”—LIBER: A Feminist Review

Eating While Black invites us all to examine how racial, class, and other anxieties often drive institutions and individuals to consciously or unconsciously inflict harm on Black people (and everyone else).”—Bryant Terry, James Beard Award– and NAACP Image Award–winning author of Black Food and editor in chief of 4 Color Books

We the Dead: Preserving Data at the End of the World by Brian Michael Murphy

“In We the Dead, Brian Michael Murphy takes us on a simultaneously breathtaking and explosive tour of the various archives and databases that hold our records, and the human subjects they document, in suspension between life and death.”—Shannon Mattern, author of Code and Clay, Data and Dirt: Five Thousand Years of Urban Media
