Lecture Description

This lecture analyzes the political crosscurrents between the New Left, the feminist movement, and the Black Freedom movement to excavate the pivotal role Black women played as thinkers and activists. The Black Panther Party, one of the most influential Black Power organizations, will be closely examined as a case study of the dialectic between gender and organizational development. The Black Panthers created community programs helmed by women, faced political repression, disseminated radical ideas and changed the political landscape of radicalism in the US.
