Fred Moten: Approaching Buenaventura

March 4, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PST

Fred Moten: Approaching Buenaventura

Join Dr. Fred Moten in reflection and dialogue on his most recent journey towards Buenaventura, navigating the deep affinities and differences between Black and Indigenous radical struggle in Colombia and the United States.

“The problem of our “relations” to institutions will surely arise but outside the framework of normal understandings of equity and inclusion and by way of a radicalization of the notion of diversity.” —Dr. Fred Moten

Fred Moten studies the black radical tradition. He works collaboratively with Stefano Harney, Laura Harris, Wu Tsang, Manolo Callahan and many others. His latest book is all that beauty (Letter Machine Editions, 2019). He teaches in the Department of Performance Studies at New York University.

MATATU artist and percussionist Marshall R. Trammell performs at 6:30pm to open the space, followed by the talk and response. Audience participation guides the course of the conversation.
