A Diversity Lecture Series Event: Party/Politics: Topics in Black Political Thought  

DESCRIPTION: Professor Michael Hanchard will discuss his book Party/Politics: Topics in Black Political Thought. In this fascinating treatment of "party" life, he traces the many different forms of communal expression that underlie black parties. Party/Politics draws broadly on examples from popular culture, literature, social movements, and daily life to explore an array of themes ranging from black ideologies, the demise of Black power and Third Worldism as emancipatory projects for liberation, to more contemporary issues and debates on multiculturalism and transnational forms of identity.
