FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLIC with Prof. Leslie Alexander

By Got Kush TV, June 28, 2024

Prof. Leslie Alexander specializes in early African American and African Diaspora history, particularly the history of slavery, Black political and intellectual thought, and resistance movements. Her research is dedicated to excavating the social, political, and cultural history of slavery and the people who fought against it. Her past, current, and future projects are all driven by a common passionate intellectual curiosity; namely, how the legacy of slavery and Black activism have shaped the social, cultural, and political contours of the United States and the broader Atlantic World.

Prof. Alexander is especially interested in the myriad ways that slavery and its afterlives have shaped (and continue to influence) the United States and the Atlantic World historically and contemporarily.
