Naming White Supremacy

Executive Director of the Center for Black Literature Dr. Brenda Greene will be a panelist on the virtual panel, “Naming White Supremacy,” hosted by Fordham University GSS Student Congress’s IDEA Committee (Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism). For the spring semester programming, the IDEA Committee will be hosting a monthly anti-racist film club with accompanying virtual panelist discussions devoted to discussing the thematic issues each film raises. The January selection is the seminal documentary, I Am Not Your Negro. Author and activist James Baldwin’s work aimed to name the systemic violence of white supremacy our society has at its core, asked us to understand the insidiousness of ignorance, and challenged us to address how to move forward and create within this climate. The film is available for free to students on KANOPY.com.

The panel discussion entitled, “Naming White Supremacy” discusses the themes of the film. The four panelists will be artist, author, and activist Vinnie Bagwell; Dr. Lia Richards Palmiter, LCSW of Marywood University: Dr. Janaka Lewis of University of North Carolina at Charlotte; and Dr. Brenda Greene of Medgar Evers College. Even if you have not watched the film recently, it is sure to be a riveting conversation regarding race, creativity, community, and liberation.

No One is Illegal

REGISTER HERE

Images of Black and Brown people at the southern borders of the US have been used to illustrate many harmful narratives and policies that further criminalize communities of color. Visuals of border patrol and ICE agents violently attacking and detaining immigrants have sparked new conversations on the impact of these narratives. Many of these immigrants become vulnerable members of our communities here in NYC.

Join us as we examine migration, destabilization of nations in the Global south, local and national policies that discriminate against undocumented immigrants and the local work to organize and protect young immigrants of color.

Moderator: Lumumba Akinwole-Bandele, Organizer, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and Adjunct Lecturer, CUNY School of Professional Studies

Guest Speakers: Nana Gyamfi, Executive Director, BAJI, and Alejandra Pablos, Immigration Rights Organizer & Activist
