Event description
We are delighted to welcome Rinaldo Walcott (University of Toronto) for this talk.

About this Event

This paper argues that Black life resides still in the time of emancipation. In the paper I argue that Black freedom is “yet to come” and that what freedom might mean for Black peoples is continually violently apprehended when glimpses of Black freedom arise. The paper ultimately grapples with ideas of freedom as not yet known to us.
