ENG 280C
The Black Radical Tradition: From Black Radical Abolitionism to Black Feminism

Today, if we are willing to think about the simultaneity of systems of domination and exploitation, we can recognize the conjunction of struggles against anti-black racism, economic inequality, gender oppression, transphobia, and homophobia. However, such thinking cannot be sought in black bourgeois studies. This course answers why this is the case, and it asks us to consider the genealogy of these struggles as articulated by radical black intellectuals and activists whether working in film, literature, or public arts.
