Antoinette Brown Lecture
As the 2018 Antoinette Brown Lecturer, Dr. Young will deliver the lecture titled, “Willful Behavior, Inherent Value, and Moral Imagination: The Making of a Black Queer Ethic.”
We find ourselves in the midst of a neoliberal resurgence of moral depravity, and many of us are searching for new (or old) ways forward. To contribute to such a search, this lecture explores the connection between womanist theo-ethical moral frameworks, black feminist political perspectives, and a queer afrofuturity underwritten by black queer imaginative work. The question on which I base the quest is this: What moral possibilities exist beyond the doors of liberation, and what might we need to unlock (or break down) to find them?
