Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies
16th Annual Ray Warren Symposium
Beyond Resistance: Race and Revolutionary Struggle
November 13-15, 2019
To engage in revolutionary struggle is to resist the imbalance of power of a racist and capitalist global order. The 16th Annual Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies explores the many ways in which generations of people of color have challenged unjust and oppressive institutions. It also asks how we move beyond resistance toward more radical social transformation. How are past and present revolutionary struggles intertwined? What might it mean to imagine a social order that rejects hierarchical economies and ideologies? How do we confront the risks and perils of this work, including suppression, surveillance, silencing, and other forms of counterresistance?
Honoring the work of communities of color that have mobilized for self-governance and liberation, together we will meditate on past, present, and future revolutionary struggles in asking how we can get free.
