Event Description:


Yours for Justice: The Continued Relevance of Ida B. Wells' Diagnosis of Domestic Racial Terror  

Professor Jane Anna Gordon of the University of Connecticut Department Of Political Science 

Everyone who has heard of Ida B. Wells is familiar with her as an anti-lynching crusader. What was crucial about her work was that it framed the rise of lynching in the early 20th century as entirely a function of hostility to the end of slavery and the growth of the project of black freedom. Professor Jane Anna Gordon will speak about Wells’ work and how her framing of anti-black violence as domestic terror forces us to consider why such actions are, to this day, not considered and treated as treasonous.


Presented by The Department of Africana Studies & The Women’s And Gender Studies Program
