From Double-Consciousness to Public Diplomacy: the changing value of African-American culture

Sociology Department public lecture

This lecture will explore the arguments outlined in Paul Gilroy’s new book Darker Than Blue: on the moral economies of black Atlantic culture. He will consider the transformation of a freedom culture rooted in slavery and ask how the pursuit of human and civil rights came to be annexed by corporate multiculturalism.

Paul Gilroy is the first holder of the Anthony Giddens Professorship in Social Theory at LSE.
