Angela Harris, distinguished professor of law at the University of California at Davis, will give the 30th annual Black Experiences Lecture at Bucknell University on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center Forum. This lecture is free and open to the public. 

The talk is titled "Food, Farming and Freedom: The New Black Agrarians," and it will feature Harris discussing the plight of black, urban farmers and gardeners in San Francisco's Bay Area and how they believe that small farming makes for good citizens. She will also talk about their commitment to anti-racism and multicultural solidarity and show how their vision of the "good life" does not fit the traditional civil rights paradigm. She will then make the argument that new black agrarianism represents a perhaps surprising compliment to the Black Lives Matter movement and that it constitutes one of the arts of living on a damaged planet.

A specialist in critical race theory, feminist jurisprudence, law and cultural studies, race relations, women's rights, and law and society, Harris is a distinguished professor of law, the Boochever and Bird Endowed Chair for the Study and Teaching of Freedom of Equality, and the Director of the Aoki Center for Critical Race and Nation Studies at UC Davis. 

The Bucknell Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Gender annually sponsors the Black Experiences Lecture.
