Moments in Black (Radical) Theory: From Ferguson to Rhodes Must Fall to Silent Sam

POLSCI 589S

The time for black (radical) theory is now! This course introduces students to a series of thinkers connected by a set of moments and locations that demand black radical theorizing. Conjoining black radical traditions in the United States and South Africa, students are asked to think about contemporary political deadlocks in campus struggles, in the extension of those politics to the streets, in the Movement for Black Lives, #FeesMustFall, #RhodesMustFall, and varied organizing around the removal of monuments to colonialism, imperialism, slavery, and the Confederacy.
