Black Box is a new international review of revolutionary art and letters. Our first volume contains dispatches from American prison yards, the shipping graveyards of India, fatal overseas drone strikes, roads crisscrossing the Mississippi delta, childhoods in revolutionary Zimbabwe, and kitchens where undocumented workers wash dishes.
As the serial disasters of capitalism’s crises—economic, social, political, and environmental—continue to batter the world, Black Box: A Record of the Catastrophe is a device for recording, analyzing, and transmitting events as they happen. We offer neither dire predictions nor false hopes. The poems, articles, drawings, reports, and theory in Black Box embrace the mystery of catastrophe – its unfolding and what might transpire.
