Princeton offers ‘#BlackLivesMatter’ course with readings by an avowed Marxist
Princeton University students can learn about the growth of the Black Lives Matter movement — while reading from an avowed Marxist.
A Fall 2021 course, called “#BlackLivesMatter,” plans to discuss the important role the social movement has played in fighting against historical oppression of Black Americans.
“This seminar traces the historical roots and growth of the Black Lives Matter social movement in the United States and comparative global contexts,” the course description said.
Students will read “Freedom is a Constant Struggle” by Angela Davis, a former Black Panther whose weapons were used in the kidnapping of a federal judge. She was acquitted of a kidnapping charge. Davis is also the 1979 “Lenin Peace Prize” winner, granted to her by the Communist country of East Germany.
That may be one reason the course will align itself with a group dedicated to ending the “nuclear family structure.” The formal Black Lives Matter organization was also started by self-described Marxists.
The description says the course, like the BLM movement, is “committed to resisting, unveiling, and undoing histories of state sanctioned violence against Black and Brown bodies.”
The course will also offer “a critical examination of the prison industrial complex, police brutality, urban poverty, and white supremacy in the US.”
