Event Address: 101 Auburn Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA, USA
The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with On Our Own Authority Publishing, will host revolutionary organizer Modibo Kadalie for a conversation around his publication Pan-African Social Ecology: Speeches, Conversations, & Essays.
In this collection of interviews and public talks, he reflects on the sit-ins, boycotts, strikes, urban rebellions, and anticolonial movements that have animated the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. Kadalie demonstrates how the forms of direct democracy that have evolved through these freedom struggles present the promise of a future defined by social liberation as well as ecological healing.
Modibo Kadalie is a social ecologist and lifelong revolutionary organizer. In the 1970s, he was a member of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers and the African Liberation Support Committee and a delegate to the Sixth Pan-African Congress. He is the founding convener of the Autonomous Research Institute for Direct Democracy and Social Ecology and the author of Internationalism, Pan-Africanism, and the Struggle of Social Classes.
