Black Software: The Internet and Racial Justice, from the AfroNet to Black Lives Matter book note.


Through archival sources and the voices of many of those who lived and made this history, the book centralizes African Americans’ role in the Internet’s creation and evolution, illuminating both the limits and possibilities for using digital technology to push for racial justice in the United States and across the globe.

This hardcover goes behind the scenes. It exposes early adopters who helped America’s Black community use computers, network and perform community activism online.
