The Black Studies Colloquium (BSC) and the Black and Latino Studies (BLS) Department at Baruch College will host a talk entitled “Black and Indigenous Resistance to Racist Backlash Across the Americas” by Juliet Hooker, an agenda-setting scholar-activist of Blackness, Indigeneity, and gender in the Americas. This talk will discuss the findings of Black and Indigenous Resistance in the Americas: From Multiculturalism to Racist Backlash an interdisciplinary edited volume charting the rise of racist backlash and the work of antiracist resistance by Black and Indigenous peoples in seven countries of the Americas. The volume provides key insights for understanding contemporary racial politics across the Americas, where openly white supremacist politics are on the rise. It is the product of a multiyear, transnational research project by the Antiracist Research and Action Network of the Americas in collaboration with resistance movements confronting racial recalcitrance in Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States. Dr. Hooker is the author of Race and the Politics of Solidarity (Oxford, 2009) and Theorizing Race in the Americas: Douglass, Sarmiento, Du Bois, and Vasconcelos (Oxford, 2017).
Moderated by Professor Marcus Johnson (Political Science)
