This roundtable demonstrates the advantages of open access by presenting multiple approaches to studies in United States black print culture, drawn on digital and material archives. Topics include representations of Haitian independence in early African American serials, late-nineteenth-century medical and entertainment displays of postmortem black bodies, and mid-twentieth-century comparative black Pacific print culture studies.
