Why We Need Black Radicalism: online panel

As part of our Black History Month celebrations, we will look at the role of Black Radicalism in creating and maintaining Black Joy.

Black radical movements are often presented with military agendas that aim to overthrow systemic racism at any cost.

However, radical philosophies, including many Afrofuturist concepts, ask us to reimagine society in positive and nurturing ways. Black radical collectives continue to explore ways of belonging and supporting people from all positions including centring queer and disabled voices and the thoughts of those in incarceration.

Hosted by Dr Hannah Marie Robbins (Assistant Professor in Popular Music), our panel of speakers will look at Black radicalism that centres freedom, possibility and imagination.

Panel of Speakers:
Janine Francois (Central St. Martin’s)
Lisa Robinson (UoN)
Professor Anthony Reddie (Regent’s Park College, Oxford)
Larissa Kennedy (President of the NUS)

The event will be open to the whole of the University of Nottingham community via MS Teams Live.
