The Racial Politics of Time – Cultural theorist Brittney Cooper examines racism through the lens of time, showing us how time has been historically stolen from people of color, resulting in lost moments of joy and connection, lost years of healthy quality of life, and the delay of progress. A candid, thought-provoking take on history and race that may make you reconsider your understanding of time and your place in it.
