Event description

Description

This is a launch event for LBS's new online learning platform, New Timbuktu. This new platform will house the autonomous intellectual innovations of Pan Afrikan thought leaders from around the world and Baltimore. Pieces will include articles, white papers, book reviews and a lot more. New Timbuktu will also house our new podcast, In Search of Black Power, hosted by Lawrence Grandpre and Lady Brion.

New Timbuktu is a concept we use to encapsulate our attempts to speak back to the academy and inject our unique lessons we’ve culled from our decade of on the ground experience as policy advocates, teachers, and community organizers. In 2014, we created the New Timbuktu cell phone app, where we sought to aggregate Black radical videos into a central location. Over the past few years, we have given in person New Timbuktu lectures. The idea has evolved and improved. This initiative is designed to function as a grassroots intervention into the academy.


Join us in celebration and discussion about why New Timbuktu is necessary and what you can expect.


This event is FREE and open to the public.
