New York Liberation School – a community study session
SPEAKER: Conor Tomas Reed
New York Liberation School documents how a public university and city were transformed by such writers and organizers as Toni Cade Bambara, Samuel Delany, June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, and Assata Shakur. Through archives, interviews, publications, and movement waves, we chronicle what occurs when people commit to radically reconfiguring an urban learning institution instead of abandoning it as a lost cause. This dialogue will invite NYLS readers to discuss the book’s themes and proposals for revolutionary change in our lifetime.
