Praise for Distributed Blackness: African American Cybercultures 

"Distributed Blackness is required reading. No one understands how technologies of race and the digital must be framed and reimagined right now better than André Brock. This book disrupts and defines the tremendous expanse and range of Blackness on the internet, and will make anyone who thinks they know the history of the web reconsider. While the problems of race and racism on the internet are inescapable, Brock helps us re-center joy, power, love, and resistance too." ~Safiya Umoja Noble, author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism
