Taylor’s talk centers on the broad social and political context that produced #BlackLivesMatter insurgency in the 2016 Presidential Election, and its antecedents.

What is the significance of Bay Area protest traditions and student activism at local universities such as Merritt College, San Francisco State, San Jose State, and UC Berkeley, to Occupy Oakland, the Oscar Grant movement, #BlackLivesMatter and the Colin Kaepernick NFL protests?

Is #BlackLivesMatter the “Second Coming” of Black Power? And Why has #BlackLivesMatter reached a dead end so soon after it appeared?

Presented by: Dr. James L. Taylor, Professor at the University of San Francisco

Wednesday February 14, 2018 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the F-building Pit Area
