Black resistance

tamura-lomaxThe African and African Diaspora Studies Program will present “Imagining Black Resistance in the House that Slavery Built,” a lecture and Q&A featuring Tamura Lomax, co-founder of the Feminist Wire. Her talk will explore the possibilities of black resistance in the neo-colonial, neo-liberalist digital age where the market, ranking, strangeness, expendability, orphanage, loss, discipline, and commodification are not solely problems “out there” in the world but “in here” in academic institutions. Lomax is co-editor of Womanist and Black Feminist Responses to Tyler Perry’s Productions and author of the upcoming book Jezebel Unhinged: Loosing the Black Female Body in Black Religion and Black Popular Culture. Her talk will take place on Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. in Stokes Hall 195S.
