Long-running anarchist radio and podcast The Final Straw sits down with author and activist William C Anderson, who speaks on his new book, The Nation on No Map: Black Anarchism and Abolition.
This week we are really pleased to feature Scott conducting an interview with author and activist William C. Anderson about his new book The Nation on No Map: Black Anarchism and Abolition which is out now from AK Press. In this interview they speak on the book and its many facets, and Black anarchism more broadly, some of the failures of euro-centric and white anarchism, and many many more topics.
