CAB: Resources for "Our Existence is Resistance"

Below is the Cumulative Annotated Bibliography I created during my first term in graduate school. After presenting at the 7th Annual Archeological Conference of the South Carolina Lowcountry, a few people came up and asked about my research. I'm committed to sharing everything I've learned and making resources as accessible is possible. Whether reading for work, school, or pleasure, I will continuously update my reading list with literature that is expanding my outlook. I hope it is as helpful to you!
