This essay argues that critical ethnic studies emerged from and needs to be connected to social movement knowledge production. It analyzes a lost archive of ethnic studies movement knowledge through an examination of subterranean literature on racial formation and settler colonialism produced in the 1980s and 1990s by a Chicago-based network of antiprison revolutionaries connected to the Black Liberation Army. The essay focuses on two self-published books originating in this formation: Settlers: Mythology of the White Proletariat by J. Sakai (1983) and Night Vision: Illuminating War and Class on the Neocolonial Terrain by Butch Lee and Red Rover (1993). These books still circulate among dissident prisoners but are largely unknown otherwise. Still they offer a fruitful point of convergence of academic and social movement knowledge formations: the insurrection of subjugated knowledges.
