Rage Renegades: A Message to Allies

Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center, the Department of Philosophy and the Hofstra Law School Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council.

A lecture by Myisha Cherry, PhD, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at University of California, Riverside, in which she will discuss Rage Renegades: A Message to Allies from her new book The Case for Rage: Why Anger is Essential to Anti-Racist Struggle (Oxford University Press, November 2021).

Rage Renegades refers to allies with rage at racial injustice. They are rage renegades because although their privilege and place in a white-supremacist society is meant to guarantee that they will be complicit or engage in racism as a way to maintain racial domination, they instead show outrage at such a society. In doing so, they rebel against a racist system that was designed to benefit them exclusively. But rage renegading can also go wrong when it reinforces the same white supremacy that the rage aims to challenge. In this talk, I’ll describe four ways in which this misdirection can happen as well as provide some suggestions for how to steer clear of it.
