Living the crisis through ten moments

Winter 2016

A personal account of key moments in the development of a black intellectual, and of the importance of the work of Stuart Hall in that development, told through ten ‘moments’. These include experiences of race and class in childhood, and first encounters with the higher educational establishment, and then the sustained engagement with Hall’s work through which Carrington was able to make sense of his own life and the world around him. He writes that without Hall’s work he would never have found his space within the academy.
