Details

The year 1818 saw the birth of two foundational thinkers: Frederick Douglass and Karl Marx. Abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass writes in 1864 that "the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation" in response to discriminatory racial policies that he seeks to dismantle. Similarly, Karl Marx finds his task in 1843 to be the "ruthless criticism of all that exists" as a means to social, economic, and political reform. Faculty panels on these extraordinary theorists examine their lasting influence.

 

Tonight’s discussion on Frederick Douglass will be presented by:

Corey Barnes, PhD | Assistant Professor, Philosophy

Irene Williams, PhD | Professor, English

 

Discussion on Karl Marx will be held on November 29.

This event is open to the public
