Left of Black with Salamishah Tillet and Sohail Daulatzai

Left of Black - Season 3, Episode 17

In her new book Sites of Slavery: Citizenship and Racial Democracy in the Post Civil Rights Imagination (Duke University Press), University of Pennsylvania Professor Salamishah Tillet examines the ways Black artists and writers have democratized US memory by revisiting the "sites of slavery." For Tillet, this is the natural extension of a segment of the American population that, despite possessing "legal" citizenship, continues to experience "Civic Estrangement."

As Black American artists and writers have sought to reframe the past, the Muslim Third World has also reached back to Black American history finding political and cultural inspiration in the Black Radical traditions of Malcolm X and others—traditions that were themselves inspired by Muslim Third World resistance in Algiers and Iraq in the mid-20th century. UC-Irvine Professor Sohail Daulatzai makes these powerful connections in his new book Black Star, Crescent Moon: The Muslim International and Black Freedom Beyond America (University of Minnesota Press).
