Join us at the FNECC to hear anarchist historians Saralee Stafford and Neal Shirley speak about their new book, Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South, which engages “hidden” insurrectionary episodes in Southern history to demonstrate the region’s long arc of revolt. Countering images of the South as pacified and conservative, this adventurous retelling presents history in the rough: indigenous resistance to colonialism, treason to whiteness, slave revolts, labor battles, prison uprisings, urban riots, and more.
