Slavery And The Making Of America,
Feb 9 & Feb 16
Coming to PBS on Feb. 9th and the 16th from 9PM to 11PM is the four part
series Slavery And The Making Of America, produced by Dante James, and
narrated by Morgan Freeman. Dante is an incredible filmmaker who has
produced many award wining films among them biographies on Marian Anderson
and A. Philip Randolph. He worked with the late great filmmaker Henry
Hampton at Blackside and was the executive producer of Hampton's last
series This Far By Faith: African American Spiritual Journeys.
Slavery And The Making Of America tells the story of slavery from the point
of view of the enslaved. The series recognizes the strength, humanity and
dignity of the enslaved and redefines them as pro-active
freedom fighters not passive victims.
It is essential to pass this email on to friends and family and encourage
them to watch. If we can create a large audience for this important series
PBS will be forced to produce and air more programs that address the
African-American experience. There are also two web sites for the series

A Conversation on Dialectics, Radicalism
the Future of American Studies
with Grace Lee Boggs
Wednesday, January 25
11:30am to 1:00pm
3512 Haven Hall
Over the past two decades, West Indian Marxist C.L.R. James has become one of the most widely cited theorists in American Studies. During this time, few, however, have taken Martin Luther King seriously as a theorist, instead opting for "progressive" readings that portray MLK as a social democrat whose boldest pursuit was “jobs” and “economic justice.” Activist/philosopher Grace Lee Boggs will argue that a deeper engagement with King is vitally necessary to transcend the limits of intellectual work rooted in Jamesian critiques of race, class and culture. Although like most sixties militants she initially dismissed MLK, she later came to recognize that King's thoughts on the relationship between self and structural transformation marked him as one of the most profound dialectical thinkers in American history. Boggs asserts that overcoming what King called the "giant triplets of racism, militarism and materialism" mandates struggling through the unresolved contradictions with which he was grappling at the time of his death. In light of the moral, social and political crises caused by the collapse of the industrial order, unending warfare, and the demise of the urban school system, King's historical writings, speeches and actions have proven timelier than ever.
A daughter of Chinese immigrants, Grace Lee Boggs received a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Bryn Mawr in 1940. She has been involved in movement organizing for over six decades, spending most of this time in Detroit. Boggs was a core member of the Johnson-Forest Tendency working in close collaboration with C.L.R. James for twenty years. She is the author of the autobiographical Living for Change and numerous other writings including Revolution and Evolution in the Twentieth Century (co-authored with James Boggs). Boggs delivered the Keynote Address of the 2003 MLK Symposium at UM. Please read her 2005 MLK lecture “Now is the Time” at http://boggscenter.org/mlkjackson05.shtml
