Community as Rebellion: Lorgia García Peña & Ruha Benjamin
June 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ruha Benjamin will join Lorgia García Peña to discuss her new book, Community as Rebellion in a hybrid event.
Weaving personal narrative with political analysis, Community as Rebellion offers a meditation on creating liberatory spaces for students and faculty of color within academia. Much like other women scholars of color, García Peña has struggled against the colonizing, racializing, classist, and unequal structures that perpetuate systemic violence within universities. Through personal experiences and analytical reflections, the author invites readers—in particular Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian women—to engage in liberatory practices of boycott, abolition, and radical community-building to combat the academic world’s tokenizing and exploitative structures.
