This conversation discusses Nyong’o’s chapter ‘Black Humanitarianism’ in the 2014 volume Retrieving the Human: Reading Paul Gilroy. We will focus on Nyong’o’s reading of Gilroy’s ‘critical sympathy’ with human rights and humanitarian projects as well as his suggestion that abolitionism can be understood as a human rights campaign.
