Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement: No Box: Part 1 (University of Illinois)

The capitalist democratic system in America has been stacked against black people from the start. But this system is changing rapidly. Information technology is increasingly making labor obsolete, and one question raised is whether this means the end of the “box” of racist, capitalist society. Is it really possible to live with “no box”, in a society with no racism, no class exploitation, and no limitations on freedom? Perhaps not, but these utopian visions of a world without a “box” can still provide constructive ideas and values. In this lecture, Abdul Alkalimat talks about utopian visions of the world posed by Religion, Communism, Cyberspace, and Posthumanism.
