Cedric Johnson Book Launch

ArtCenter Library, Hillside Campus
Thursday, March 30th, 4pm-6pm

Please join Designmatters + H&S + ArtCenter Library for a very special reception and author chat to celebrate and recognize the release of After Black Lives Matter written by Cedric Johnson, visiting professor from the University of Chicago. Cedric has been an influential force on the ArtCenter campus during the past year and will be talking and offering Q + A about his recent title.

This book makes a necessary and uncompromising intervention into the debates around race, policing, and inequality in the US. It takes aim at the assumptions and strategies associated with the main line of Black Lives Matter. And, for that matter, bon-pensant liberal thinking in general. It should go without saying that this book will court its fair share of controversy.

"This is the most thorough exercise in historical and political thinking on the topic. The argument is simple with deep implications. Deploying accessible political theory, historical arguments and contemporary examples, After Black Lives Matter points the way toward a different kind of movement and a different sort of society." - Asher Dupuy-Spencer, editor

Space is limited, so please RSVP Here.
