CONVERSATIONS IN BLACK FREEDOM STUDIES
Black athletes have long propelled the quest for racial equality and social justice; and long been criticized for their freedom fighting. Join sportswriter Dave Zirin, historian Louis Moore, and legendary athlete and activist Wyomia Tyus in a discussion of the last half century of black male and female athletes in the freedom struggle.
The Conversations in Black Freedom Studies series brings the campus to the community on the first Thursday of each month. Curated by Professors Jeanne Theoharis (Brooklyn College, CUNY) and Komozi Woodard (Sarah Lawrence College), the series brings new scholarship to the public, challenging older geography, leadership, ideology, culture and chronology in civil rights historiography.
Conversations in Black Freedom Studies is made possible through the generous support of Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation.Buy tickets/get more info now
