Talking About Race: Black Politics and Neoliberalism
In his recent book, Knocking the Hustle: Against the Neoliberal Turn in Black Politics, Lester Spence charts the negative effects of the capitalist “hustle harder” mentality on African American communities and suggests new pathways to igniting the black political imagination. Spence will talk with Bret McCabe, a senior writer at Johns Hopkins Magazine who published an extended profile of Spence in the Winter 2015 issue.
The Ivy Bookshop will be on hand to sell copies of Spence’s book, and he will be available after the talk to sign copies.
Lester Spence is a political science professor at Johns Hopkins University.
Bret McCabe is a senior writer at Johns Hopkins Magazine.
