On the 50th anniversary of the mass movements of 1968, and in the face of growing threats to democracy, to racial, gender, and economic justice, and to environmental sustainability, the UMass Amherst Department of History's 2018 Feinberg Series explores revolutionary visions of the future. The series takes its inspiration from visionary movements led by poor people and people of color that have confronted the immediate challenges impacting people's lives while simultaneously working to build alternatives. Drawing on the words of historian Robin D.G. Kelley, this series explores their “freedom dreams.” That is, it looks at “what people in particular movements dreamed of, what they thought they were fighting for,” and how they imagined and built new and radically different worlds.
Series events and initiatives will explore the radical imaginations of intellectuals, artists, political leaders, renegade thinkers, community organizers, and everyday people who have worked to make another world possible.
All events are FREE and open to the public.
