Title of Talk: “Anti-racist Development: Insurgent Scholarship and Practice in the Age of Inequality and Violence”
Summary: Is development anti-racist? In this talk Professor Thembela Kepe takes a thought journey in the entanglements of race and development, and how this is relevant to our times. He draws from a range of thought leaders, as well as his own work, to argue that insurgent scholarship and practice are necessary for confronting race-development entanglements.
