Pan-African Social Ecology

March 21, 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History

The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with On Our Own Authority Publishing, will host revolutionary organizer Modibo Kadalie for a conversation around his publication Pan-African Social Ecology: Speeches, Conversations, & Essays.

In this collection of interviews and public talks, he reflects on the sit-ins, boycotts, strikes, urban rebellions, and anticolonial movements that have animated the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. Kadalie demonstrates how the forms of direct democracy that have evolved through these freedom struggles present the promise of a future defined by social liberation as well as ecological healing.

Modibo Kadalie is a social ecologist and lifelong revolutionary organizer. In the 1970s, he was a member of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers and the African Liberation Support Committee and a delegate to the Sixth Pan-African Congress. He is the founding convener of the Autonomous Research Institute for Direct Democracy and Social Ecology and the author of Internationalism, Pan-Africanism, and the Struggle of Social Classes.
