Studio Museum 127, 429 W. 127th St.
Join us for a discussion of scholar and activist C.L.R. James’s 1938 text, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution. Facilitated by Dr. Brian Jones, Associate Director of Education at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, this program brings the Schomburg Reading Circle to the Radical Reading Room for a rich discussion of the history of the Haitian Revolution, James' approach to the subject, and the legacy of the book and of the events it analyzes. This program is presented in partnership with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
Throughout the run of Radical Reading Room at Studio Museum 127, drop by on the first and third Saturdays of each month to contribute your text to the community archive and discuss its personal and collective importance. Centering radical approaches to storytelling, programs in this series may take the form of writing workshops, zine-making workshops, or live oral histories led by members of our creative community.
Stay tuned for more details.
