The Long Black 1980s: A Lunchtime Talk with Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

Monday, April 25, 2022

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this seminar we will think about the first generation of the post-civil rights era. If we think about politics in their formal and informal capacities, that will be a catalyst for understanding the changes to Black life in the pivotal era of the 1980s–the pivot being the moment of post-insurgency and before the onset of mass incarceration and the unraveling of the American welfare state, both of which ensue by the end of the twentieth century.
