Main Building Virtual Room 1
Lecture by Willie Wright Rutgers University
The enthusiasm for the field of black geographies has grown exponentially since it was formalized in the edited volume, Black Geographies and the Politics of Place. As a scholarly approach, Black geographies are reliant upon a particular lines of sight, alternative value systems, methods, and liberatory practices. With this talk, I provide a genealogy of this framework through the works of Black geographers. I ground this analytic by way of a discussion of the origins and antecedents of the Republic of New Afrika.
