We are kicking off Black History Month with renowned speaker and activist Melissa Denizard on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, at 11am ET, for a Crucial Conversation exploring black identity.
Blackness is as Delicious as Gumbo: An Exploration of the Black Identity
What ties the Black diaspora together: culture or pain? Fusing lecture and seminar styles to provide young people with an innovative approach to learn political theory, this presentation aims to explore the Black culture and the diasporic pain experienced by Black people by using Solange Knowles' albums, A Seat at the Table and When I Get Home as key contemporary pop-cultural sources to analyze similar themes that have been echoed throughout the Black Radical Tradition.
