Black Nationalism and Social Movements
Harvey Hall Room 109
About the Speaker
Ashanti Alston, a "postmodern" anarchist black nationalist, will speak about black nationalism and the ideology of the black panthers in the context of ongoing social movements for communities of color and other oppressed groups both historically and currently. He will speak about black nationalism, historical black power and civil rights movements, and other revolutionary ideologies from the perspective of an organizer who is currently involved in global social movements from Ireland to Chiapas. For almost 25 years, Ashanti has worked "on the ground" both inside and outside the nonprofit system, for a future of humanity that is both liberated and just. He will speak about this vision through the lens of his vast experiences and apply it to its current day relevance amongst the claims of a post-racial society as a result of the recent election of United States' first black president.
