Danielle Hodge of the College of Media, Communication and Information will discuss what it means to love Blackness in a white supremacist and anti-Black society during "Liberatory love and freedom: Radical Reenvisionings." The CU event will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 16.
Building on African American intellectual traditions, Hodge will re-envision the relationship between freedom and love in the struggle for liberation.
Registration for the Zoom webinar is open. Spanish interpretation, closed captioning in English and ASL interpretation will be available.
