Black Perspectives is hosting an online roundtable on Gerald Horne’s wide-ranging scholarly contributions to African American history and the black radical tradition. “Gerald Horne’s Black Radical History” will assemble a diverse group of scholars to reflect on pressing themes in black history’s global reach. It begins on Monday, June 5, 2017 and concludes on Saturday, June 10, 2017. During this week-long forum, each scholar will address various aspects of Horne’s scholarship, including his books on slavery, Caribbean history, and transpacific black history, along with his biographies, and works on W. E. B. Du Bois.
The forum will feature essays by Yuichiro Onishi (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities); Jessica Marie Johnson (Johns Hopkins University); Brandon Byrd (Vanderbilt University); Phillip Luke Sinitiere (College of Biblical Studies); and Charisse Burden-Stelly (Carleton College). At the conclusion of the roundtable, Professor Horne will respond.
During the week of the online roundtable, Black Perspectives will publish new blog posts every day at 5:30AM EST.
