Theories of Race

Earlier this year, we partnered with the team at Harvard University’s Hutchins Center for African & African American Research to design “Theories of Race: An annotated anthology of essays on race, 1684⁠–⁠1900.” Part of the “Who's Black and Why?” project from Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Andrew S. Curran, the digital format prioritizes readability for excerpts from a variety of primary sources and thematic highlights from across time and space. The book was compiled by Geoffrey Galt Harpham and includes his thought-provoking introductions to the texts.
