Freethinker or the Sunken Place? Black Political Identity in the Trumpian Era (ID 452)
Using as a catalyst the debate over Kanye West’s support of the president, participants will engage with the question of developing a Black political identity in the Trumpian era. The program will include the voices of both conservative and progressive Black undergraduate students, through which participants will investigate each group's values, notions of "wokeness," and the correlation of each of these with party affiliation.
