This webinar focuses on migration, policing, and political movements, particularly involving the experiences of Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Mexicans, and U.S.-based Afro-Latinxs. Scholars working at the intersections of Africana, Latinx, and Latin American studies will explore the ways that these issues overlap and impact Afro-Latin Americans and their diasporic communities in the U.S.

The event is sponsored by the Global Studies Center, in collaboration with Hispanic Heritage Month and the Afro-Latin American and Afro-Latinx Studies Initiative (Department of Africana Studies) at the University of Pittsburgh. Featured panelists include: Dr. Eddie Bonilla, UCIS Postdoctoral Fellow in Latinx Studies at the University of Pittsburgh; Dr. Jennifer Jones of the University of Illinois at Chicago; Dr. Zachary Morgan of Penn State University; and Dr. Keisha-Khan Y. Perry of Brown University.
