Disposable People, Disposable Planet On the "Living Writers on Revolution" List compiled by The Editorial Board of Edge Effects Magazine "Kitanya Harrison’s collection of essays remains strikingly and unfortunately, relevant. As Harrison writes in the introduction to Disposable People, Disposable Planet: 'Each essay in this volume discusses something precious that is being devalued. Black lives. The rain forest. Facts.
