Tuesday FORUM, 2-26-13, 1-2 PM: Black History Month Special from Philosophy Talk--"Black Solidarity"
From the abolition of slavery to the Black Power movement, black unity has been considered a powerful method to achieve freedom and equality. But does black solidarity still make sense in a supposedly post-racial era? Or should we be moving past all racial identities and identity politics? And how should we think about racial solidarity versus class or gender solidarity? In celebration of Black History Month, John and Ken join forces with Tommie Shelby from Harvard University, author of We Who Are Dark: The Philosophical Foundations of Black Solidarity. This hour will be available for listening anytime after broadcast as a podcast on this website; click on Talk Shows--Tuesday Forum--(select date).
