Dalitso Ruwe, newly appointed Assistant Professor in Black Political Thought, will speak at TEDxQueensU, this February 5th, at the Kingston Grand Theatre.

From the TEDxQueensU website: “Our speakers deliver their ideas in iconic TEDx talks, influencing delegates to make positive change by enacting their own "ideas worth sharing.” Our Innovation Lab will provide an additional opportunity for delegates to engage with one another during intermissions.

“Dalitso holds a joint appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy and Black Studies Departments at Queen’s University. His research is grounded in the fields of Africana Philosophy, Critical Race Theory and Black Male Studies, and he explores the cultural, socio-political, and legal attitudes that arise in the aftermath of the death of Black males killed by police officers and vigilantes. His work illuminates how social movements are repressed by legal apparatuses from protesting the deaths of Black males. Outside of academic research, Dalitso enjoys playing pool, basketball and watching sci-fi movies.”
