The Bright Black Webinar: Ending Slavery in Contemporary Intellectual Practice

The Bright Black Webinar (facilitated by Alexis Pauline Gumbs)


The Bright Black Webinar draws on the brilliance of black intellectuals from the era of US slavery to imagine black intellectual practice in a post-university post-non-profit ecology. Slavery is supposedly over but the conditions are strikingly similar (pun intended).  Let’s draw strength from the strategies our ancestors used.  How do the contradictory conditions of black intellectuals like Phillis Wheatley and Benjamin Banneker reflect the vexed situation of contemporary black intellectual practice in the university and non-profit industrial complexes?  How do the works of brilliance created by black intellectuals during slavery point a way past and through the limiting and liberating contexts of the present moment?  Join us on Tuesday evenings in October to draw infinite strength and tangible strategies from black genius ancestors!
