Description

Join Roderick Ferguson as he discusses the Lumumba-Zapata Movement that took place at UC San Diego from 1969 to 1972. The talk situates the movement within the emergence of minority difference as a lever for both critical and dominant formations. Using the Nixon administration's investment in the Black Power Movement as well as corporate capital's increasing interest in radical political movements, the talk theorizes the San Diego movement as a formation that helped to identify minority difference's current predicament as both a site of contestation and hegemonic affirmation.
