This talk by Dr. Vargas will invite the audience to consider the concept of anti-blackness and the challenges of Black autonomous analysis and political organizing. He will bring to light how progressive research and progressive multiracial efforts that address Black suffering are often unable to engage foundational, structural, multigenerational, and ubiquitous forms of anti-blackness. In multiracial progressive mobilizations of the Black diaspora, Brazil and the U.S more specifically, Black suffering is acknowledged while anti-blackness is negated.

This event is free and open to the public.
