Department Annual Lecture

 In this presentation, 'Awakening to Reparations: Race, Colonialism, and Black Vitality, 1865-1914', Kris Manjapra will explore a constellation of four later-19th C black scholar-activists — Martin Delany, E.W. Blyden, Anna Cooper, and Marcus Garvey — located across three continents. Their Pan-Africanism, when understood as a manifestation of reparations struggle, provides us insights into the way black vitality was imagined and enacted amidst continuities of colonial oppression.

Speaker and Chair

He is the author of five books, including his comparative study of global emancipation processes and the implications for reparations movement today: Black Ghost of Empire: The Long Death of Slavery and the Failure of Emancipation (Scribner and Penguin, 2022). His previous book, Colonialism in Global Perspective (Cambridge, 2020), contributes to the emerging field of Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora Studies.
