Columbia University: Institute for Research in African American Studies  

IRAAS Conversations Lecture with Kevin Quashie, Saidiya Hartman & Robert Gooding-Williams

In Black Aliveness, or A Poetics of Being, Kevin Quashie imagines a Black world in which one encounters Black being as it is rather than only as it exists in the shadow of anti-Black violence. As such, he makes a case for Black aliveness even in the face of the persistence of death in Black life and Black study.
