“Yours in Love and Revolution: The Immortal George Jackson in the Sun of Palestine”

The focus of this talk by Greg Thomas ’91 is the stunning link between a legendary revolutionary prisoner, George Jackson, who came to be a part of the Black Panther Party, and a legendary Palestinian poet, Samih al-Qasim. The links of solidarity and radical kinship across time and space will be recovered and contextualized by this multimedia lecture. Thomas teaches global Black Studies in English at Tufts University.  Free and open to the public.
