Interview with Saidiya Hartman

From The White Review

"The political scientist James Scott has done all this work on the anarchist traditions of South Asian peasants, and I would say there’s also a history of radical struggle that has its origins on the African continent.

This is part of a series introducing aspects of anarchism for those new to the idea. As I wrote in Part 1, it is inevitable that there will be some people who will disagree with my representation of anarchism here. And I could never do justice to the complexity of anarchism.
