Knowledge for Freedom: "Black Study" and the Present Struggle
As Ruth Wilson Gilmore theorizes, the black radical tradition is “a plot in which we aim to make all space, not just some space, free.” Our current moment demonstrates the power of this plot. In the present struggle for black lives, black study models a resistant knowledge aimed at liberating all spaces and all black bodies from state and other forms of violence.
Please join us for a conversation with oppositional intellectuals, Nikhil Pal Singh (Black is a Country: Race and the Unfinished Struggle for Democracy and Race and America’s Long War), Brandi Thompson Summers (Black in Place: The Spatial Aesthetics of Race in a Post-Chocolate City), and Savannah Shange (Progressive Dystopia: Abolition, Antiblackness, and Schooling in San Francisco).
