Join us in a celebration of the philosophy of Leonard Harris, and the recent publication of A Philosophy of Struggle: The Leonard Harris Reader.
SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH, 2022
PURDUE UNIVERSITY (WEST LAFAYETTE, IN)
Dr. Leonard Harris, a preeminent voice in the philosophy of race (racism as a form of necro-being) and pioneer of Africana philosophy, has inspired generations of philosophers with his novel contributions to the field, including philosophy born of struggle (a “New Movement” in philosophy as such) and insurrectionist ethics. A Philosophy of Struggle was published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2020.
