CASSANDRA PRESS REDEFINES THE WAY BLACK CRITICAL THEORY IS TAUGHT. In 2016, the artist Kandis Williams founded Cassandra Press, named in homage to the Trojan princess, with two other co-founders. The press produces lo-fi pamphlets called Readers, consisting of texts authored by Black critical theorists; holds classes; and offers artist zines at a substantially low price available for download from the site. A statement on the Cassandra Press website outlines its mission: “Our intention is to spread ideas, distribute new language, propagate dialogue-centering ethics, aesthetics, femme-driven activism, and black scholarship, because y’all ain’t listening.”
