NEW DATE: Monday, March 18, 4:00 – 5:30 P.M.

Báyò Akómoláfé, Poet, Philosopher, Psychologist, Professor, Passionate about the Preposterous, has been selected as Pitzer College’s 2024 Stephen and Sandra Glass Annual Humanities Lecturer. We hope you can join us for this riveting lecture.

Akómoláfé is an author, celebrated speaker, teacher, and self-styled trans-public intellectual (a concept inspired by the shamanic priesthood of the Yoruba healer-trickster). His vocation goes beyond justice and speaking truth to power to opening up other spaces of power-with and queering fond formulations and configurations of hope. Akómoláfé is author and editor of We Will Tell Our Own Story! with Professors Molefi Kete Asante and Augustine Nwoye, and These Wilds Beyond Our Fences: Letters to My Daughter on Humanity’s Search for Home (North Atlantic Books, 2017). He is the author of multiple essays on matters ranging from the nature of science, the coronavirus pandemic, racism, tricksters, climate chaos, and unschooling. Akómoláfé is writing his third book as part of a trilogy of creative nonfiction/ fiction publications.
