Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur.

Imperium in Imperio – an order within an order.

Dr. Levander’s article states that “territory will be key to the Imperium’s project-not simply because the region’s location on the periphery of nations makes it a focal point for various efforts to reclaim lost rights…but because such efforts raise important questions about black governance.” The territory in question is not just a physical space – “territory” carries connotations of ownership, and so Belton Piedmont’s efforts are as much a struggle for ownership of himself and his ideas as they are a striving for basic freedoms. The “territory” is a place, a body, a mind, a space in society, a position of worth in academia. Territory also suggests order; perhaps this is the imperium that Belton is searching for within the imperio of the university – the order of Stowe University ultimately has to be augmented by the order of the society that he creates.

In your opinion, Dr. Levander, what was the ultimate result of the Plan de San Diego, versus its apparent intention?
