Leith Mullings On Racism, Resistance And Activist Scholarship In Dangerous Times.
Leith Mullings, Distinguished Professor Emerita at the Graduate Center and newly minted retiree will explore the current context of racism and briefly review the main findings of a recently concluded collective research project carried out by a network of scholars and activists in seven countries, committed to challenging racism against African descended and indigenous people. The focus of her talk will be the U.S., where there is significant intensification of the movement to normalize white supremacy and misogyny. After raising questions about the Left and 'identity politics, she will examine the resistance, with emphasis on the Black Lives movement. We look forward, as always, to a lively discussion following her talk.
Light refreshments will be served.
