Dr. James’ lecture will be followed by responses from Dr. Orisanmi Burton, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, American University; Dr. Kristen Wright, Humanities Scholars Program Postdoctoral Fellow, Cornell University; and Bam Willoughby, Doctoral Candidate in Africana Studies, Cornell University. The event is moderated by Zifeng Liu, Doctoral Candidate in Africana Studies, Cornell University, and is co-sponsored by the Humanities Scholars Program and the Africana Studies and Research Center.


On Friday 11/20, "Shaping Abolitionist Futures: A Community Discussion" will serve as a talk-back and opportunity for Q&A featuring scholars from the 11/19 event and undergraduate students from the Humanities Scholars Program. Attendees will be allowed to pose questions in the Q&A. You do not need to have attended the 11/19 event in order to register for the 11/20 community discussion.

Attendees only need to register once to attend one or both events, as we are using the same Zoom Webinar link.
