So Since I’m Still Here Livin’: A YouTube Reader, is an anthology of transcripts edited by Kelly Xio. This collection leverages the murky power of the YouTube algorithm and the open source traditions of web publishing to assemble a chorus of voices in a call for social justice and Black liberation. Spanning generations and movements, this reader re-presents infamous and lesser known speeches, conversations and debates that have motivated historical and contemporary struggle. The book features an original introduction by Xio and is presented in a dynamic and experimental paperback format. A playlist of video clips and outtakes from the paperback book is featured at This project is co-published with Open Forum, Berlin and supported by Wendy’s Subway, New York City.
