This is the third event as part of the series Race, Rebellion, and Global Solidarity. Black Star, Crescent Moon offers a new perspective on the political and cultural history of Black internationalism from the 1950s to the present. Author Sohail Daulatzai maps the rich, shared history between Black Muslims, Black radicals, and the Muslim Third World, placing them within a broader framework of American imperialism, Black identity, and the global nature of white oppression. Join us for a discussion with the author that will be facilitated by Dr. Michael Sawyer, Associate Professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh. His work focuses on the revolutionary potentiality of Black people, and takes a multi-disciplinary approach to exploring the works that authorize, accompany, sustain, and depicts Black Being.
