Artist-in-residence Zoé Samudzi will be reading from her book "As Black as Resistance" (co-authored with William C. Anderson) as one of the events associated with the show "Particular Relativity: As the Universe, So the Soul" (June 1-August 3) and a series of salon discussions. This salon will engage the values of Black feminist anarchism as and within both a political and artistic framework.

“As Black as Resistance is an urgently needed book . . . a call to action through an embrace of the anarchy of blackness as a recognition and a refusal of the deathly logics of liberalism and consumption. In the face of the ever expanding carceral state, levels of inequality, environmental degradation, and resurgent fascism, this book offers a map to imagining the liberated futures that we can and must and do make.” —Christina Sharpe, author of In the Wake: On Blackness and Being

Zoé Samudzi  is a writer and doctoral student in Medical Sociology at the University of California, San Francisco. Find her at http://www.zoesamudzi.com/
