Beyond Anti-Racism: What the Black Radical Tradition Offers
Date & Time
Monday, April 26, 2021, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Amy Finnegan Kanishka Chowdhury Todd Lawrence Ry O. Siggelkow

Faculty in American Culture and Difference will engage in a moderated discussion about what they see as the possibilities and limitations of “anti-racist” authors that have enjoyed mainstream attention in recent months. Specifically, they will draw on the extensive body of work known as the Black Radical Tradition, which includes scholars such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Cedric Robinson, Angela Davis, and Ruth Wilson Gilmore, among others. This session will deepen our anti-racist critical lens by considering analytical frameworks such as racial capitalism. It will also introduce those present to a list of possibilities of what to consider reading next.
