Dark Agoras: Insurgent black social life and the politics of place - J.T. Roane - book cover
J.T. Roane

Dr J.T. Roane discusses his book, Dark Agoras: Insurgent black social life and the politics of place, showing how working class Black communities cultivated two interdependent  modes of insurgent assembly in 20th century Philadelphia.

He investigates the ways they transposed rural imaginaries about and practices of place as part of their spatial resistances and efforts to contour industrial neighborhoods.

In acts that ranged from the mundane acts of refashioning intimate spaces to expressly confrontational and liberatory efforts to transform the city’s social and ecological arrangement, these communities challenged the imposition of progressive and post-progressive visions for urban order seeking to enclose or displace them.

PhD researcher Jonny Moniz will be the discussant, reflecting on the work of Dr Roane.
