About the Author

João H. Costa Vargas is professor of anthropology at the University of California, Riverside. He is author of Catching Hell in the City of Angels (Minnesota, 2006) and Never Meant to Survive.


"The Denial of Antiblackness marks nothing less than a landmark moment in the radical trajectories of Black Studies, African Diaspora Studies, and Black radical social thought. This book--this radical project--is an invitation to engage with the very same Black radical experimentation and generosity of which it writes, while constantly punctuating this invitation with a demand for accountability on the part of Black and nonblack peoples to struggle with the specificity and structural immovability and determinacy of anti-Black terror and violence."--Dylan Rodríguez, University of California at Riverside

"The Denial of Antiblackness brings a bold new way to approach the scandalous levels of antiblack violence, as well as the denial of the very fact of blackness as structuring dimension of the social process and state-formation in both Brazil and the United States. João H. Costa Vargas builds a brand new analytical bridge between the two countries, so different in many ways yet sharing the same fundamental racial contradictions."--Osmundo Pinho, Universidade Federal do Recôncavo da Bahia
