Notes

Those attending the event will be expected to have read Shelby's "RICHARD WRIGHT: REALIZING THE PROM

The Center for Race, Philosophy, and Social Justice promotes normatively inflected social and political thought geared to thinking through the demands of racial justice in the United States in the aftermath of Jim Crow and the election of our nation’s first Black president.  Housed in IRAAS, the Center sponsors interdisciplinary initiatives that, while chiefly driven by the scholarship of philosophers and social and political theorists, regularly engages the broadest available range of empirical, social scientific and interpretive, historical-cultural inquiry.  CRPS builds on Manning Marable’s legacy by maintaining a focus on the contributions that African American Studies has made and will continue to make to the articulation of a racial justice agenda.

Tommie Shelby, Caldwell Titcomb Professor of African and African American Studies and of Philosophy at Harvard University, will lead a workshop titled "Richard Wright: Realizing the Promise of the West."

Those attending the event will be expected to have read Shelby's Richard Wright: Realizing the Promise of the West. The PDF can be downloaded freely here.
