The Peril and Promise of Black Politics
The Institute on Race, Power, and Political Economy at The New School is thrilled to host the 2023 Henry Cohen Lecture Series, “Visions of a Post-Neoliberal Future.”
At a pivotal moment of paradigm shift, many are asking, what will come next? According to many scholars and activists, the existing market-centric economic paradigm has failed: it has failed to deliver broad-based prosperity or financial stability, particularly for Black, Indigenous and other people of color. How do we forge a new economy that fosters broad prosperity with economic inclusion, civic engagement, social equity, and human dignity at its center, regardless of identity?
“Visions of a Post-Neoliberal Future” will bring leading thinkers, changemakers, policymakers, journalists, and activists to The New School to present their perspectives on building an inclusive political economy.
The first upcoming event of this lecture series is titled, “The Peril and Promise of Black Politics,” and will be held on Tuesday, March 28. Selected speakers include Nina Turner, former Ohio State Senator and senior fellow at the Institute on Race, Power, & Political Economy; Demond Drummer, managing director of Equitable Economy at PolicyLink; and Jumaane Williams, public advocate for New York City. This lecture will dive into Black politics, as Turner and Drummer have a forthcoming book on the topic.
All lectures will begin at 7pm and will be held at the Old Tishman Auditorium on The New School campus at Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall (66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011).
