Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor “From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation”

Is whitelash enough of an explainer for the rise of President-elect Donald Trump?

Is it rigorous enough to blame the people who didn’t show up to vote for our impending collective struggle under this administration?
On this edition, we hear from Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, assistant professor in the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University. Dr. Taylor most recently wrote, “From Black Lives Matter to Black Liberation.” We’ll be sharing a talk with Dr. Taylor’s insights on Black Liberation as framed through this most recent election.
