The theme for the third cycle of Insurgent Intersections is “Global Lived Experiences of Anti-Blackness", in which we center the ways anti-Blackness touches people’s day-to-day lives. 

Fall 23 Keynote ThumbnailSolidarities and Shared Struggles: Global Lived Experiences of Anti-Blackness

Our third year of inquiry launched with a lively conversation on the global and sometimes unexpected reach of the logics of anti-Blackness. With perspectives from Africa to Gaza, we explored how the systems that evolved to control Black people are also utilized to oppress many other communities – and how these intersections inform people’s continued struggles for life, dignity, and liberation. Our keynote speaker was international journalist Hannah Ajala, with opening remarks on Gaza from Dr. Noura Erakat and original poetry performed by Lilian Agu.
