This RaceB4Race roundtable brings together scholars from different disciplinary perspectives to celebrate and discuss the legacy and futures of a landmark work by a groundbreaking scholar in the field of Premodern Critical Race Studies, "Black Lives in the English Archives, 1500-1677: Imprints of the Invisible," by the late Imtiaz Habib. A vital intervention in archival praxis, methodological innovation and disciplinary possibility, "Black Lives in the English Archives" radically redefines the scope of scholarly possibility.
