The Colonial System Unveiled: Towards New Perspectives of Studying Slavery in Africana Philosophy

While essential work in Africana philosophy that illuminates the perils of Western constructs of race and racism has been laid out, scholarship is yet to excavate genealogies of Africana critiques of Western slavery as distinct philosophical themes that can contribute to the understanding of slavery from the vantage of the subjugated. This presentation is a call for more theorizations of such genealogies.

Note: this is an online event organized by an undergraduate student group. Interested auditors will gather with students at the appointed time to enjoy an online presentation from the speaker.
