Students in “Social Geography: Radical Black Thought” are exploring radical Black theory, action and imagination in a course led by Chérie Rivers Ndaliko. “The idea of the course is to take the ideas that are put forward by radical Black thinkers and artists and to reimagine ways to organize ourselves culturally, economically and politically,” Ndaliko said. Ndaliko is an associate professor of geography and also serves as director of research and education for Yolé! Africa. The organization was founded by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Petna Ndaliko Katondolo (to whom she’s married) to empower youth in eastern Congo by giving them the creative space to thrive despite the deadly conflict in the region.
