Start Date: 2/25/2021Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 2/25/2021End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:

Presented by the Department of Africana Studies

How can a country be democratic when some people’s votes count more than others’? What should be done when one of the consequences of a long history of double standards and systemic disenfranchisement is that some people’s lives also count more than the rest of us? Drawing upon ideas from Africana thought, especially regarding freedom, justice, and decolonization, this talk will address this set of questions in light of recent events, including the attempted coup in the storming of the U.S. Capitol in January 2021. Presented by Lewis R. Gordon, professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Connecticut.
