Introduction to Racial Capitalism


July 13, 2021 at 6:00pm - 7:30pm



Racial Capitalism is a term that has reached mainstream media attention over the past few years; however, it is an academically debated term stemming largely from Cedric J. Robinson’s seminal work Black Marxism. During this series of three workshops we will explore:

  1. Introduction to Racial Capitalism
  2. Racial Capitalism and the Fight for Interracial Labor Unions in the City of Philadelphia
  3. Racial Capitalism, Climate Change, and Epidemiological Crises

These workshops will be led by Dr. Jasmine Noelle Yarish who trained under Dr. Cedric J. Robinson at UC Santa Barbara, and is currently an assistant professor of political theory at the University of the District of Columbia and resident of Philadelphia. These workshops are being presented by the Racial Justice Committee of Philly DSA.
