Working with and through a black radical/critical intellectual and political tradition, this talk–hosted by the Department of Social Justice Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education–will map another genealogy of critical theory which posits that the central issues of our time are our modes of production of the human and freedom. It will argue that contemporary black radical political thought (including the contributions of WEB DuBois, Sylvia Wynter, Frantz Fanon and Aimé Césaire) opens up spaces for the reframing of current critical theory.
