Imani Perry and Eddie S. Glaude Jr.

This is one in a series of events with Voices of a People's History. Check out more related events here.

Voices of a People's History honors the centenary of historian Howard Zinn (1922–2010), author of the classic bestseller A People's History of the United States, with a new podcast conversation series hosted by the archivist and memory worker Zakiya Collier. Together, Collier and her guests draw from Zinn's example of interrogating key moments of the historical record via documents, images, and recordings to create an illuminating dialogue on what the past can teach contemporary audiences. Scholars and authors Imani Perry (Looking for Lorraine; Breathe: A Letter to My Sons) and Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for our Own) will discuss the 50th anniversary of the National Black Political Convention, an under-acknowledged landmark assertion of the Black freedom struggle. Actor and educator Brian Jones will also read some vital passages of speeches at the convention.

This event is approximately 90 minutes.
