The Origins and Future of Critical Race Theory
September 28, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Join Lee B. Artz, Ph.D., Professor of Media Studies and Director of the Center for Global Studies at PNW (left) with Patrick Anderson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor Philosophy, Central State University, Dayton, OH, and Contributor: Mint Press News and Black Agenda Report for a discussion on The Origins and Future of Critical Race Theory.
Beginning with an overview of the work of Derrick Bell, the “father of critical theory,” Peterson introduces a robust intellectual and political history of critical race theory as racial realism. Working from a Black radical tradition and anti-colonialism, Peterson offers a critique of intersectionality as an idealist, liberal iteration of critical race theory.
