Beyond the Blues: The Racial Unconscious and Collective Memory
Despite or maybe because of the horrors of our past, slavery, apartheid and the Holocaust, we are again confronted with the iniquities of racial inequality.
Racial reparation requires an acknowledgment of and responsibility for the terrible harms committed. Racism in contrast is a powerful and destructive defense, against this.
In this lecture Professor Zaretsky shows how Black activists and writers drew on psychoanalysis to understand the roots of racial violence. He is a professor of history at the New School for Social Research. His previous works include secrets of the Soul: A Social and Culture History of Psychoanalysis (2004) and Why America Needs a Left: A Historical Argument (2012).
