Spring 2021 guest speaker series Conversations on Racial Politics and Social Justice in Latin America and the Caribbean:
The first guest speaker will be Dr. Vanessa Valdés (Director of the Black Studies Program at the City College of New York), who will present “A Case for Afro-Latinx: The Towering Example of Arturo A. Schomburg” on Wednesday, Feb. 17 (from 2:30 to 3:30 pm.). Her presentation highlights aspects of Arturo Schomburg’s life as an Afro-Latino and underscores how these features shape Afro-Latina/o/x identity development. She will also touch upon womanhood and how Afro-Latina/xs make sense of their identity through non-Western cultural traditions.
This event is part of the Black History month and it is co-sponsored by The Center for IDEAS, Department of English, Department of Sociology, the Caribbean and Latin American Studies Certificate Program, and Sigma Delta Pi.
