The Nu Skool of Afrikan American Thought: A Self-Determined Community Gathering

In the spring of 2019 I was asked to write a blog post about an instance of education with the explicit purpose of liberation happening in the Twin Cities. I decided to focus on the Nu Skool of Afrikan American Thought, a monthly topical lecture and dialogue series. I am part of the Twin Cities Solidarity Committee, which convenes the Nu Skool. The blog post was in anticipation of the 2019 Free Minds, Free People conference where 1200 youth, educators, activists, and scholars gathered together in July in Minneapolis. The post also includes a retrospective video describing the four-year history of the Nu Skool.

Peace! Brian
