Black Heritage Month Brown Bag with Dr. Randi Gill-Sadler

Citizens on the Wrong Side of Liberation: Black Feminist Thought, U.S. Empire and the Caribbean

Dr. Gill-Sadler's talk will highlight the United States neocolonial exploits in the Caribbean during the 1980s. Within that geopolitical context, she argues that Black Feminist intellectuals like Audre Lorde and June Jordan wrestled with their proximity to U.S. Empire as American citizens and their desire for a disaporic, Black community beyond the United States. In highlighting this strugggle, Dr. Gill-Sadler will gesture towards how revisiting Black feminist thought at this moment might shed light on contemporary issues of politics, diaspora and racial identity.
