He is a Distinguished Professor of History at UCLA in Los Angeles, and among his many books are Race Rebels: Culture Politics and the Black Working Class; Yo’ Mama’s DisFunktional!: Fighting the Culture Wars in Urban America; and Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination. Kelley speaks with Laura about the protests in Ferguson, the struggle for justice in Palestine, protests against tuition hikes at the University of California school system, and the importance of radical imagination.
