Public Lecture by Prof. Rinaldo Walcott (University of Toronto):
The Long Emancipation: Moving Towards (Black) Freedom


This paper tackles the question what is (Black) freedom. It surveys a range to recent events to begin to make sense of Black non-freedom. By so doing the paper argues that we are yet to see what freedom might look like for Black subjects globally.
