How Does it Feel to Be a Problem? DuBois, Black Moralism and Secular Struggle for Change

In this presentation, Dr. Anthony Pinn will explore the manner in which Du Bois’s response to the question "How does it feel to be a problem?" suggests the outline of a mode of moralism sensitive to the dynamics of blackness in the U.S. This Black Moralism pushes against the tendency to think about justice work as framed by the certainty of outcomes, and instead prompts a sense of struggle as perpetual rebellion without assurances. In this way it says something to and about secular humanism in a context of racial disregard.
