Help us challenge racist narratives with this new book by David Pilgrim

We here at PM Press have launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new book by David Pilgrim, Watermelons, Nooses, and Straight Razors: Stories from the Jim Crow Museum, a 272-page, full-color book from the Jim Crow Museum which examines the significance of longstanding antiblack stories and challenges the integrity of racist narratives.

"Undergirding David Pilgrim’s effort is his powerful belief that we, as a society, heal better when we stare down the evils that have walked among us, together.” —Henry Louis Gates Jr., director of W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African American Research

We seek to raise at least $10,000 through pre-orders to cover the expensive printing costs and increase accessibility by charging an affordable list price. Donations will be tax deductible.

Elizabeth Hand's Fire. in Rain Taxi

 

"...In Hand’s writing, anything can happen. “I’ve always wanted to believe in the existence
 of that other, hidden reality. In my writing I try to . . . depict it in as realistic a fashion as possible,” she says in “Flying Squirrels in the Rafters,” in which she’s interviewed by Terry Bisson. She also reflects on her work with other writers in the Stonecoast MFA program in Maine..."—George Longenecker, Rain Taxi


“Hand is an expert at building mood and atmosphere in ways that you don’t realize until you feel it around you.”

Out of the Ruins in The Midwest Book review

"Critique: Out of the Ruins sharply criticizes the entire social structure of the current educational system, especially its capitalistic, market-driven approach, and offers viable alternatives in its assembly of essays by public education experts. While unreservedly recommended as a core addition to both community and academic library Contemporary Education Issues collections, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students and non-specialist general readers that Out of the Ruins is also available in a digital book format." —James Cox, Midwest Book Review

Sporting a tank top with the word “Ally” written above a photo of John Brown, perched on top of the literal soap box she preaches from, Naima Pepper is a force to be reckoned with... Readers will be smitten with Naima, and they will hope for more of her."—Kirkus
