Radical Black Political Thought in the 20th and 21st Centuries
Department of Social Justice Education's Annual Colloquium, Public Forum and Reception
Working with and through a black radical/critical intellectual and political tradition, this talk by Professor Anthony Bogues will map another genealogy of critical theory, which posits that the central issues of our time are our modes of production of the human and freedom. Bogues argues that contemporary black radical political thought opens up spaces for the reframing of current critical theory.
Join us for this fascinating discussion and stay for a reception and Social Justice Education end-of-term party, from 6:00-7:30pm. Please RSVP for the reception at firstname.lastname@example.org.
