Join us on Thursday, October 28 at 4:30pm ET for a Study Group with IOP Resident Fellow Trymaine Lee

Dismantling Master’s House with Their Own Tools

It’s been said that “master's tools will never dismantle the master's house.” In a racial and political context, the question must be asked if changing a country and a system built on genocide, slavery and oppression from within that very system is even possible.

Black people are largely dismissed or derided by one of America’s major political parties and taken for granted by the other. Can a new crop of young Black politicians use the political process to change the system and the narrative that you can’t truly serve the people from the master's house?

RSVP by 10:00am ET on 10/28. You must register through this form and a limited number of seats will be allocated for in-person participation. We will notify you at noon the day of the study group via your Harvard email whether you will be joining in-person or via Zoom. 

*AUDIENCE: These conversations are open to members of the Harvard community. Please RSVP with a valid Harvard email address.

*OFF-THE-RECORD: In keeping with our long tradition at the IOP to ensure honest and candid discussions of politics, all IOP study groups are off-the-record.
