The history of the Afro-American struggle for equality II.

The second of a series of three lectures by the columnist and editor of A2 Matěj Metelec,
which shall take place on the site of the evacuated boarding house.

The second lecture on the struggle of Afro-Americans for freedom and equality shall focus on the period from the First World War to the heat of the battle for civil rights in the mid 1960s. We shall look at the main current of this battle, as personified by Martin Luther King jr., at the boycotts and mass events held especially in the American South. However, the lecture shall centre chiefly upon the radical movement in the North, as it formed within the environment of the Nation of Islam organisation, and we will devote special attention to one of the most important figures of the radical black movement of all time, the charismatic speaker Malcolm X.

The history of the Afro-American struggle for equality I.

The first of a series of three lectures by the columnist and editor of A2 Matěj Metelec,
which shall take place on the site of the evacuated boarding house.

The Afro-American struggle for equality erupted in its full force after the Second World War, and its victorious battles were waged in the 1960s. However, it was formed by the entire history of blacks in America, beginning with slavery. It was precisely this experience that was and remains to this day the basis of the relationship between black and white America, and the struggle against racism and discrimination. For this reason, the first lecture focuses on how blacks first came to America, what awaited them there and how after the end of slavery they began to struggle for equality.

Romafuturismus

“NEPRIESTRELNÍ, ten život na nás páli svoje

for so long we have become

invincible.

We have experiences that have made us strong. This is the moment

we are invincible.

We don’t fall to our knees, we are unafraid of anything, because

sme, NEPRIESTRELNÍ. (Nepriestrelní).”

Refrén a slova ze skladby “Nepriestrelní” rappera P.A.T.a si můžeme bohužel přímo spojit s nedávnou tragickou událostí v Chomutově, kde byl z rasistických důvodů zastřelen čtyřiatřicetiletý Rom. Jako abstraktní metafora se tento text může blížit myšlence afrofuturismu, která vznikla v polovině minulého století ale je aktuální i v současné době.
Afrofuturismus popisoval situaci, ve které Afroameričané naleznou spravedlnost až ve vesmírné diaspoře existující mimo planetu Zemi. Vědecká fantastika se tak stala vizí naděje a útěchy před “bílým” útlakem.
