We host accessible educational programming that contributes to building and strengthening popular movements in New York City and beyond as well as a revitalized non-sectarian left intellectual culture rooted in the struggles of the poor and dispossessed.

Our educational programming includes topics such as: history, political economy, social theory, racial/gender/LGBTQIA/immigrant justice, collective strategies for organizing, liberation theology, and many others—with an internationalist focus. Driven by our organizational commitment to building unity across historic lines of division, our programming covers a wide range of subjects, movements, and pedagogical methods.

La negra de aquel negro: entre la resistencia y la subversión (San Juan Bautista, siglo XVI)

Para el conquistador las negras eran mercancía, y en este primer siglo de asimilación colonial a través de cientos de documentos fueron no solamente cosificadas, sino también fueron doblemente subordinadas. Su condición de mujeres implicaba un sometimiento  ante el hombre, el marido o el tutor. Sin embargo, dentro de este proceso de sujeción las negras utilizaron los intersticios del poder para resistir y subvertir.
