JOHN BROWN ALSO HAD A BEARD

"[A] searing analysis of the deep roots of white supremacy and black exploitation in hipster culture...

[Decolonize Hipsters by Grégory Pierrot] breaks down what the hipster has been at since at least the eighteenth century...

[But it also] offers a path forward—the possibility of breaking the cycle of colonization, appropriation, and theft...

It involves another [man with a beard]: John Brown, whose memory and legacy Pierrot suggests is the one US American culture should be mining and appropriating."
