Philosophy in the Library: Black Lives Matter

Thursday, May 18, 2017 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Central Library, Dweck Center

People tend to think of social justice as a matter of rights and economic equality. James Baldwin, however, believed democratic love was the most necessary and overlooked aspect of social justice. Chris Lebron (Yale University) explores why Baldwin’s commitment to love is more urgent than ever.

Presented by Brooklyn Public Philosophers.
