Forum on Writings on Politics, Inequality and Liberation, Thursday, September 22, 2016, 4:30 p.m.

The forum in the Chancellor Green Rotunda will celebrate recent book releases by three faculty members, Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Chika Okeke-Agulu, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. Professor Glaude, chair of the Department of African American Studies, will moderate a conversation featuring his colleagues Professor Okeke-Agulu (Art & Archaeology and African American Studies) and Professor Taylor (African American Studies). Though the books cover different themes, places and time periods, all three grapple with ideas related to politics, inequality and liberation.

Books that will be discussed on Thursday afternoon:

Postcolonial Modernism: Art and Decolonization in Twentieth-Century Nigeria by Chika Okeke-Agulu

From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul by Eddie S. Glaude Jr.
