Re-Defining Black Power
Joanne Griffith examines the Obama administration and questions whether the president has sufficiently answered many of the issues facing the black community. For the book she edited, Ms. Griffith interviewed a collection of African-American academics, including economist Julianne Malveaux, civil rights lawyer Michelle Alexander, and Van Jones, former adviser to President Obama. Ms. Griffith was joined in discussion by Marc Anthony Neal, a professor of black popular cultural at Duke University, and filmmaker Byron Hurt. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience at Hue-Man Bookstore in New York City. close
