Anti-Blackness, Social Feelings, and Public Policy: 1954-2020

March 4, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Presented by Cooper Honors Program, English Department

Dr. Lisa Corrigan, Associate Professor of Communication and Director of the Gender Studies Program at the University of Arkansas, will talk about her latest book, “Black Feelings: Race, Affect, and the Long Sixties” (2020). By examining the discourses produced by Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Stokely Carmichael, Huey Newton, Eldridge Cleaver, and other Black Power icons who were marshaling black feelings in the service of black political action, Dr. Corrigan traces how black liberation activists mobilized new emotional repertoires.

Join via Zoom. For more information, contact Dr. Laura Barrio-Vilar.
