Writing as a Springboard to Beyond Memory



Working now on a presentation for Brent Edwards' "Black Radicalism and the Archive," in which I'm discussing C.L.R. James's fantastic and still-urgent Beyond a Boundary , both a cricket memoir and, more strikingly, an argument for the artistic, and therefore socio-political agency of, sport, especially cricket.

One quote resonating with me as I try to shape my thoughts:

"once you have written down something your mind is ready to go further" (59).

More on this book soon, I hope.

In the meantime, play Stick Cricket online here

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
