#BlackLivesMatter and Indigenous Resistance: Thinking Through Intersectional Movements

Sep 17, 2020 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | 139


We invite you to join us for the first installment of “Radical Kinship,” a new series curated and hosted by CRG’s Arts and Humanities Initiative Research Scholar, Alan Pelaez Lopez.

In this first installment, Amber Starks and Ashley Ngozi Agbasoga will discuss Afro-Indigenous resistance, contradictions and their radical possibilities. Starks, known as@MelaninMvskoke on social media, is a Black Mvskoke (Creek) citizen whose tweets and Instagram art encourage Black and Indigenous peoples to prioritize one another and divest from compartmentalizing struggles. A doctoral candidate at Northwestern University, Agbasoga’s work illuminates how Black, Indigenous, and Black/Afro-Indigenous women engage in placemaking practices that reveal and unsettle notions of race, place, and modern state formation in México.

Co-sponsored by African American Studies and Native American Studies.
