Beschrijving

Undrowned is a book-length meditation for social movements and our whole species, based on the subversive and transformative lessons of marine mammals. Our aquatic cousins are queer, fierce, protective of each other, complex, shaped by conflict, and struggling to survive the extractive and militarized conditions humans impose on the ocean.

Gumbs employs a brilliant mix of poetic sensibility and naturalist observation to show what they might teach us, producing not a specific agenda but an unfolding space for wondering and questioning. From the relationship between the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale and Gumbs’s Shinnecock and enslaved ancestors to the ways echolocation changes our understandings of ‘vision’ and visionary action, this is a masterful use of metaphor and natural models in the service of social justice.
