12th Annual Anne Braden Memorial Lecture featuring Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor will deliver the talk "From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation" as the 12th annual Anne Braden Memorial Lecture.
The author of two books, From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation (Haymarket Books, 2016) and How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective (Haymarket Books, 2017), Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor was awarded the Lannan Foundation’s Cultural Freedom Award for an Especially Notable Book and the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction. From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation surveys the historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality, while connecting anti-police brutality protests with a larger anti-capitalist movement. Race matters. Class matters.
Dr. Taylor is currently Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, after serving as the Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of African American Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013-2014.
