St. Clair Drake, The Roosevelt University Years

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will consider Drake’s time as a professor of sociology, anthropology, and African Studies at Roosevelt University. More specifically, it will focus on the symbiotic relationship between a public intellectual and an institution in Chicago during a period of rapid social and political transformation, nationally and internationally. Beginning in 1946, when Drake joined the faculty of Roosevelt, and ending with his departure in 1969 to chair the Black Studies program at Stanford University, Drake negotiated the entangled processes of discrimination and colonialism by keeping one foot in the United States, studying and agitating against the causes of racial conflict and inequality, and the other in Africa, working on behalf of new nations in the making. By essentially opening up Roosevelt and, by extension, the city of Chicago to the rest of world, Drake became in his own person, a vital bridge between two historic communities committed to a vision of freedom throughout the Cold War years. That Roosevelt proved instrumental by providing Drake with the institutional protection and flexibility necessary to facilitate cross-national dialogue and interaction throughout the Cold War period is suggestive of its place in the making of modern Afro-diasporic linkages.
