Blackness and Latinidad in the West

A learning space about the intersection of Latinidad and Blackness using multimedia and guest speakers. The facilitator will lead a discussion to include historical context of Afro-Latinos in US-Mexico borderlands and ways to support Black joy and survival. There is a lack of exposure to issues concerning anti-blackness in Mexican-American borderlands, unlike on the east coast where blackness has intersected in more visible numbers, and this lack of knowledge can be detrimental to Black people who live in the borderlands.
