Can everyone put their decolonization book rec's below? I would like to compile a list and add some books to my TBR list.
- Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad
- An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
@RadioAngel The Progressive Plantation by Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin
@GreenandBlack Ooh! After I write my next two book reviews I'll read this one!
@RadioAngel Anarchism and the Black Revolution, as well:
@GreenandBlack Thank you! Got it bookmarked.
@RadioAngel Settlers, J. Sakai.
@wraidd This looks interesting. Just got a copy to read soon. Thank you!
@RadioAngel Red Earth, White Lies! By Vine Deloria
@Hylyx 0_0 How have I never seen this book before? Thank you so much for this rec!!!
@RadioAngel yah! As someone from a "science-y" background, it really helped me see things from another perspective that really explained some things, personally and in general!
@Hylyx I honestly cannot wait to read this one. You may have motivated me to speed through my books reviews for BrontideJournal.
@RadioAngel haha aw! :blush: let us know what you think!
@Hylyx Will do!
@RadioAngel not *specifically* decolonialist, but Native Southerners by Gregory Smithers presents a really interesting history of southeastern Turtle Island, and presents the horrifying violence of colonization as such—no wishy-washy garbage.
@Ethancdavenport On the list! Thank you!
@RadioAngel Just found out about The Fifth Sun, by Camilla Townsend. It's billed as a revolutionary history of the Aztecs and is based on the Nahuatl language Annals,. The Annals were written by Aztecs for a Nahuatl speaking audience, one in which the Spanish were seen as the bloodthirsty savages. This is next on my read list.
@ewankeep Just read the link and Yes! This is definitely going on my list! Thank you!!!
@RadioAngel "What Does Justice Look Like? : The Struggle for Liberation in Dakota Homeland" by Waziyatawin
@j Thank you! It's on my list now!
@RadioAngel Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer; talks less of history but a lot about philosophy of decolonization. An excellent intro book too
@RadioAngel Why I no longer talk to white people about race, by Reni Eddo-Lodge
@RadioAngel oh, and Pan-African Social Ecology, by Modibo Kadalie
