The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Akinyele Omowale Umoja. Dr. Umoja is a professor of African American Studies at Georgia State University. We’ll discuss his 2013 publication, We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance In The Mississippi Freedom Movement. Dr. Umoja’s text is an effort to counter the narrative that black southerners were too compliant and passive to subscribe to counter-violence. He documents a long tradition beginning in the Reconstruction era where a myriad of black males and females refused to turn the other cheek or accept any manner of abuse from Whites. His text also demonstrates that frequently, when black people defended their lives and property, Whites got busy producing Justice and countering Racism because they did not want to see White lives lost. We’ll be sure to include commentary on the late Chokwe Lumumba.
