We’ve collected here our Barack Obama Debates Collection which include some of the earliest and most poignant/prescient criticism of the coming presidency from various perspectives from within the Black radical tradition.
Dr. Brian Sims joined us to discuss his “structured dialogue” Fight Club and the D.O.P.E. (Dialogue On Progressive Enlightenment) Conference.
“With the understanding that most college/university curricula train students on how to be assets to society, Fight Club operates from the premise that dominant European society itself is inherently corrupt. Therefore, society—and its attachment to a racist, sexist, patriarchal political economy that debases humans into commodities—must be purposely interrogated and radically challenged to prevent students from unwittingly becoming agents of their own oppression. Fight Club is a free space that promotes and augments this subversive activity through its intense focus on progressive dialogue and radical argumentation.” – Drs. Brian Carey Sims and Lumas J.
