Year of Global Africa: The Urgency of a Black Feminist Solidarity Project in the Americas  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Dr. Keisha-Khan Y. Perry, associate professor of Africana Studies at Brown University, specializes in the critical study of race, gender and politics in the Americas. Her recent book, "Black Women against the Land Grab: The Fight for Racial Justice in Brazil," is an ethnographic study of black women's activisim in Brazilian cities. Dr. Perry is currently working on a multi-lingual and transnational exploration of black women's political work in Latin America by critically examining how black women mobilize political movements across borders and how they understand themselves as agents in creating a diasporic community. Two MSU faculty members will offer commentary based on their own scholarship: Leonora Paula from RCAH, who will speak from her own research in Brazil, and Tamara Butler from the Department of English, who will respond based on her scholarship on related issues in the U.S.
