ACROSS RACIAL/ETHNIC DIVIDES: MULTICULTURAL CITIZENSHIPS SPEAKER SERIES

Organizing and scholarship on racial/ethnic citizenships often focus on the relationship between racial minorities/indigenous communities within the context of the U.S. dominant society.   However, increasingly, scholars and activists are now focusing on relationships between racial minorities/indigenous communities. This speaker series of organizers and activists speak to overlapping citizenships within multiple racial/ethnic communities as well as to projects of alliance-building across racial/ethnic divides. This series is held in conjunction with AMCULT 301, Human Rights and Social Justice Organizing in the U.S., and AMCULT 498, American Social Reflection: Thinking About Race and Society.
