Cultural Anthropology's August 2013 issue features essays on race theory from John Hartigan, L. Kaifa Roland, Amade M’charek, and Tami Navarro, Bianca Williams, and Attiya Ahmad; articles on cultural citizenship in the Black Atlantic World by Kamari M. Clarke, N. Fadeke Castor, Amanda D.

Additional teaching, reading, and viewing material is available for each article in its supplemental page on the Cultural Anthropology website.
