The 16-17 Princeton University African American Studies Conversation Series: A conversation about imagination and Black lives, will be held on Thursday, October 27, 5 PM – 7:30 PM, Carl Fields Center, 58 Prospect Ave, Princeton.

On October 27th, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor (Princeton), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Princeton), Marc Lamont Hill (Morehouse) and Imani Perry (Princeton) come together for what is sure to be an impassioned discussion about contemporary black issues, and ways African-American communities might reinvigorate democratic life in post-Obama America with imagination and courage. This conversation will be streamed live on Facebook.

Expect this conversation to explore black politics, state violence/poverty and various social movements. A Q&A will follow the conversation.

Marc Lamont Hill will sign copies of ‘Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond.’
