Join BuxMont DSA each week (alternating Mondays and Wednesdays) at 7:00pm for our weekly virtual political education program! Each session will include a live reading of a relatively short, accessible article or other piece of media that encourages us to think strategically about the challenges socialists face in our struggle to build a better world. Because we read articles aloud together, interspersed with open discussion, no homework is necessary!
In his interview with Frank Barat, We Still Here: Pandemic, Policing, Protest, & Possibility, Marc Lamont Hill analyzes how racial capitalism and the COVID-19 pandemic sparked the 2020 protest movement and uprisings. We will be reading the chapter Death-Eligible and discussing who is considered “disposable” under racial capitalism.
