Dr. Barbara Ransby (University of Illinois at Chicago) will speak about her recently published book, Making All Black Lives Matter: Reimagining Freedom in the Twenty-First Century (University of California Press, 2018).
The talk will outline the Black feminist ideas of intersectionality that have informed the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as the visionary leaders who have inspired and sustained it.
Many of the documents and statements coming out of Black Lives Matter point to an agenda for transformative change, not only for Black people, but for the planet.
Dr. Ransby will map the movement and assess its message and its methods.
This event has been partially or funded by the Office of Academic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Columbia College Chicago, and is co-sponsored by the Department of Humanities, History, and Social Sciences.
