Since the not easily-forgotten year 2020, with the Covid-19 pandemic and the onslaught on Black life—both of which are ongoing—post-secondary institutions, or insurgents within them, have considered what it might mean to take seriously the call to challenge systemic racism and address antiblackness within these institutions in their processes as well as their pedagogies. This talk will consider the ways in which post-secondary education has produced itself, its pedagogies, and its credentializing thrusts in opposition to Black people and Black knowledge. It will invoke (the importance of) an analytical posture that exceeds this binary, gestures toward ways in which Black politics has looked and continues to look beyond it, and thereby offer principles for an abolitionist pedagogy Please Click HERE to Register.
