In collaboration with Mr. Tom Porter we’ve attempted to chronicle the brilliance and analyses of our elders by launching this virtual lecture series with Dr. Robert Rhodes. Rhodes is a legendary behind the scenes “idea man” of the Black Liberation Movement who represents many suppressed radical strands in our history. Here Rhodes joined us for an overview conversation about the state of Black America in the global economy. Stay tuned as we announce future sessions!
