Activism and Black Life: A Yearlong Series
"Activism and Black Life" is a yearlong series sponsored by W&L's Africana Studies program. The series includes participants from multiple disciplines and various academic and civic institutions and explores how the struggle for freedom shapes black identity. Events include lectures, panels, roundtables, debates, and the Looking at Blackness (LAB) initiative, which features film screenings and listening sessions focused on The Music and Movies of Black Social Movements. During these programs, we will invite directors and artists to join us for conversations about creative process and artistic purpose. The Student Association for Black Unity (SABU), will provide student facilitators for the post-screening/listening portion of these events.
"Activism and Black Life" shows the complex legacies that created our current racial reality and, by studying the intersection between then and now, equips our community to chart a productive path forward.
