This series examines how we might read US and world history differently through the lens of African/Black epistemologies and the history of Black struggle, and what these ideas and movements have to tell us about the workings of racial capitalism, slavery, colonialism, and violence as well as collective efforts to refashion freedom and democracy.

In Spring 2018, we will read Futures of Black Radicalism, edited by Gaye Theresa Johnson and Alex Lubin.

The three discussion sessions of the book are open to all and take place 5:00-6:30 on April 16, May 7 and June 4. The price of admission is free but insist that you come having read the materials. Please email a discussion question based on the readings to Jonathan Gomez at jdgomez@umail.ucsb.edu before each session.

For those reading and attending, the CBSR is providing a limited number of books gratis. Please email Jonathan Gomez at jdgomez@umail.ucsb.edu for more information.

For more information, contact Professor Diane Fujino, CBSR Director, at fujino@ucsb.edu, or Rosa Pinter, Business Officer, at rpinter@cbs.ucsb.edu or (805) 893-3914.
