Tuesday 10/8: Power’s social and cultural origins/ Consciousness

For Tuesday October 8th, we’ll start with our review of the AmNews. Read (at least) one news — not sports or entertainment — story carefully and report to the class and bring a print copy of the paper with you. Here are questions you should ask to think critically:

  • What is the effect on the Black community?
  • How does it affect our work as organizers and how should we/our organizations respond?
  • What solutions can we collectively come up with?
  • Read chapters 3 (Social and Cultural Origins of Power) and 4 (Consciousness and Power) in Amos Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power.

    Also a reminder that most of you have not sent me either the community organization that you will work with this semester or a list of interests/possible options. If you haven’t done so, then e-mail this to me this week.
