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
@RadioAngel Anarchism and the Black Revolution, as well:
@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 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.
@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.
@RadioAngel "What Does Justice Look Like? : The Struggle for Liberation in Dakota Homeland" by Waziyatawin
@RadioAngel Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer; talks less of history but a lot about philosophy of decolonization. An excellent intro book too
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
