The erotic is often seen as a realm of oppression and danger. But, as Audre Lorde argued forty years ago, it also contains the potential for empowerment and struggle. This tension will be explored as the 39th annual Marion Thompson Wright Lecture Series (MTW) brings together eminent scholars and performers to examine the poltical and social lives of the erotic in the African American experience.
The annual Black History Month conference will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Paul Robeson Campus Center, 350 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., on the campus of Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N). The conference is organized annually by the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at RU-N.
All events are free and open to the public.
