Description

Ratchet v. Boojie: Black Class Politics in the 21st Century

The changing nature of class politics within the U.S., where the gap between the rich and poor is wider now than it has ever been, serves as the backdrop for this lecture about how class operates in the lives and language practices of Black people in the 21st century. Class is a topic of discussion that is increasingly being discussed in the context of Black life in the U.S. Class refers both to one's socioeconomic status, but also their performance of status. This lecture will offer a brief survey of class politics in Black life since the early 20th century, introduce you to the concept of performativity in relationship to class, and will interrogate the distinctions and similarities in the way people deploy the terms ratchet and boojie.
