Royster reminds us that "academic theory threatens to take us away from the lived histories of folks of color, avoiding knowledges that don't fit neatly into the needs of the academic trend of the day," and challenges theory to in the future think critically about the lived experiences of bodies of color.This work is available through jstor here: https://www.jstor.org/stable/23541223
