Watch Professor Tacuma Peters on "Coffee with the Profs"

Professor Tacuma Peters recently presented his research on the MSU Alumni Office's Coffee with the Profs series. The series highlights research and work done by some of the unviersity's finest faculty and staff. 

In his lecture, Professor Peters examines eighteenth-century Black radical political thought, including slave narratives of the late 1780s and the Haitian Revolution, we can interrogate the precarities and promises of Black life and resistance in the present time. Among other themes, the presentation will address the histories of slavery, colonialism, gender inequality, and Black resistance and their many connections to our contemporary moment.
