Crisis of the 'Negro' Intellectual? 50 Years Later

Forum for Scholars & Publics
011 Old Chem, West Campus, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina 27708
Join us as Professors Wahneema Lubiano, Mark Anthony Neal, Lester Spence, and Joseph Winters engage in a roundtable discussion of the legacy of Harold Cruse's The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual. Described as a book that «electrified a generation of activists and intellectuals» when it was published in 1967, what has been its lasting impact on American intellectual history? In what ways are contemporary scholars, artists, and activists still influenced by the arguments put forth in Cruse's provocative critique of black intellectual leadership?

A light lunch will be served.
