Challenging a Culture of Domination
Gramsci, The Blacks Panthers and Revolutionary Hip Hop
Harmony Goldberg, Donna Murch Shahid Stover
This panel discussion will build upon the Marxist notion of praxis (conscious political and creative active) as seen through the lens of Italian philosopher Antonio Gramsci, the development of the Black Panther Party and the creation of hip hop.
The three topics are interwoven by a need on the part of revolutionaries to develop a revolutionary cultire that can challenge the dominate practices of the US capitalist state. How do current organizing practices center culture? How do we connect in the era of Facebook to create new sensibilities for revolutionary practice.
