In 1865, hundreds of peasants marched to the courthouse in Morant Bay, Jamaica, to protest the slave-like conditions, disease, and hunger brought on by a prolonged drought. Ifeona Fulani, clinical professor in the Global Liberal Studies program at New York University, reads from her work-in-progress, The First Stone, and shows how that natural disaster over 150 years ago reveals contemporary questions of precarity.
Presented in partnership with Hartley Burr Alexander Chair Annual Lecture and the Scripps College Humanities Institute
