After Colonialism Dies: Fighting the New Imperialism
Kazembe Balagun with The Fanon Studies Task Force
This class will read from The Fire Next Time and Studies in a Dying Colonialism and look to where liberation movements go after the first stages of demands are met, even after overthrowing an old regime or colonial occupier, and often get absorbed into new systems of domination, especially under globalized capitalism.
Kazembe Balagun has a BA in Philosophy and Black Studies from Hunter College/CUNY and a MS in Education from Pace University. He has been featured in Time Out New York, The UK Guardian, German Public Radio and the New York Times and contributed “We Be Reading Marx Where We From” to the critically acclaimed anthology Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA. As a cultural activist he has continually sought to create intersections between Marxism, queer theory, feminism and Black liberation movements. He works as Project Manager at the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, New York Office.
