In this talk, Professor Kehinde Andrews traces the history of Black radical politics. Born out of resistance to slavery and colonialism, its rich past encompasses figures such as Marcus Garvey, Angela Davis, the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter activists of today.
Professor Kehinde Andrews is Associate Professor of Sociology, and has been leading the development of the Black Studies Degree at Birmingham City University. His new book Back to Black: Retelling Black Radicalism for the 21st Century was released in July 2018. His first book was Resisting Racism: Race, Inequality and the Black Supplementary School Movement (2013). Kehinde is director of the Centre for Critical Social Research; founder of the HarambeeOrganisation of Black Unity; and co-chair of the Black Studies Association.
