It's Going Down

Modibo Kadalie on Capitalism, Slavery and Maroon Societies in the Great Dismal Swamp

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we speak to Modibo Kadalie and Andrew Zonneveld about their new book, Intimate Direct Democracy: Fort Mose, the Great Dismal Swamp, and the Human Quest for Freedom. We talk about how racialized slavery gave rise to global capitalism and how maroon societies in places like the Great Dismal Swamp gave space to vast resistance communities that brought together anti-colonial renegades and runaway slaves.
