November 10, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
“Democracy must be defended today, at any cost. Tomorrow, when the principles which we can defend today have been passed into the hands of a totalitarian state, will be too late,” said our nation’s first Black economist, Sadie T.M. Alexander, in 1939.
Nina Banks, Associate Professor of Economics and an affiliate of Women’s and Gender Studes and Critical Black Studies at Bucknell University, discusses Alexander’s analysis of the rise in fascism and racial demagoguery in the U.S. during the 1930s..
