“Call Us By Our Names”

Late this summer, Melvin Rogers invited me to write a short piece for a special issue of Theory & Event on Michael Brown and Ferguson, Missouri.  The special issue has now appeared, and will be open-access for three months.  It’s a privilege to have my essay, titled “‘Call Us By Our Names’,” appear alongside Melvin’s introduction and the contributions by Dora Apel, Utz McKnight, Michelle Smith, Tommy Curry, Lisa Miller, Vesla Weaver, Steven Johnston, and Eddie Glaude, Jr.  You can read them all here.
