Black History Month: Essayisms Reading Group
In this inaugural launch event we will consider and celebrate the work of groundbreaking black essayists who put the essay form to work in the service of both political and aesthetic innovation and persuasion. What is the radical potential of the essay as an aesthetic form? How does it make visible the relationship between personal experience, national and cultural identity, and wider political forces? What is the role of the essay in political activism past and present? And where is its place in black literary histories across the globe?
