About the Author

James O'Neil Spady, associate professor of American history at Soka University of America, is the author of Education and the Racial Dynamics of Settler Colonialism in Early America: Georgia and South Carolina, 1700–1820.


Overall, this collection contains essays that are important for not only understanding past fugitive movements but also connecting the past to current cultural movements sweeping the world. By showing that "all Black freedom movements are fugitive" and reformulating Black antislavery as a fugitive social movement, Spady is able to "preserve a history of the Black radical tradition and link our contested present to the past," as Manisha Sinha states in the foreword to the collection (pp. xii, xiii). This book would be a great addition for a graduate-level class focusing on antislavery or Black freedom movements in the Atlantic world. It would also be of interest to any scholar who has interest in the Atlantic world, especially those who focus on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Furthermore, the connection the essays make between past anti-racist events and present-day Black freedom movements makes this a must read for anyone interested in today's racial political climate.-- "H-Net Reviews"

Fugitive Movements is a timely and necessary collection that adeptly interweaves historical scholarship and memory studies to advance understanding of the long legacy of Black resistance evident in the 1822 uprising and the Black freedom struggles that have endured to this day.-- "American Nineteenth Century History"

[This] collection does much to reframe the 1822 uprising as one episode akin to others in a dynamic Black Atlantic, African diaspora, and Age of Revolutions framework. [The] volume is as dedicated to restoring the circumatlantic dimensions of the uprising as it is to reinstating Vesey himself within radical history.-- "Journal of Southern History"
