An Evening with:  Ruth Wilson Gilmore

Fatal Couplings:  Racial Capitalism and the Black Radical Tradition

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 – 6:30pm – 8:30pm – Bayard Sharp Hall

If all capitalism is racial capitalism, then what is the work of the Black Radical Tradition, historically and in the present?  Ruth Wilson Gilmore, a feminist geographer and designated guest of the Greater Philadelphia Consortium, will explore the legacy and future of the BRT, with a focus on the work of several thinkers including Amilcar Cabral, Claudia Jones and Angela Y. Davis.  Why are war and prisons persistently present in the struggle?  What is to be done?

Kirkbride Lecture Hall, 204/206 Kirkbride Lecture Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716, USA

In 1957 nine courageous children known as the Little Rock Nine risked their lives to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Their actions mobilized a Nation to insure that access to a quality education was granted to all Americans and helped to define the Civil Rights Movement. In honor of the Little Rock Nine, the Sit-In and Study program was piloted in 2013 to improve the academic performance of African American and Latino students by creating a culture of study and community.
