14. Under the Blacklight: History Rinsed and Repeated

On Episode Five of “Under The Blacklight,” David Blight, Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, William Darity Jr., Ibram X. Kendi, and Kate Manne navigate the historical contours of the pandemic, and the pre-existing inequalities that shape its impact. Building on last week’s interrogation of “disaster white supremacy”, this week's conversation explores how intersecting systems of capitalism, patriarchy, racism, and nationalism have converged to define another dark moment in American history. In the coming weeks, we'll continue hosting live events that bring together artists, activists, thought leaders, scholars, service-providers and others on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19. Each Wednesday we’ll bring you a virtual conversation over Zoom, which will be released as an episode of Intersectionality Matters! the following week. Speakers: DAVID BLIGHT — Professor, Yale University; Pulitzer Prize Winning Author of Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom EDUARDO BONILLA-SILVA — Professor, Duke University; President of the American Sociological Association; Author of Racism Without Racists WILLIAM DARITY JR. — Economist; Professor, Duke University; Director, Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity IBRAM X.
