When I See Them, I See Us: Black Palestinian Solidarity in an Age of Struggle

February 22, 2017 ▪ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In October 2015, more than sixty Black and Palestinian scholars and activists released a video that drew attention to the common struggles of their communities against state-sanctioned violence and oppression. As ordinary people engaged in ordinary acts–selling cigarettes, sleeping, driving, going to school, or speaking politically–lose their lives for no other reason than their skin color or ethnicity, this declaration of solidarity resounded in the US, Palestine, and worldwide as a call for liberation from injustice.

Scholars and activists whose work informs this growing and critical international movement, including Ebony Coletu (Penn State), Noura Erakat (George Mason University), Alex Lubin (University of New Mexico), and Greg Thomas (Tufts University), will speak.

Co-sponsored by the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, the Urban Democracy Lab, Black History Month at Gallatin, and NYU Students for Justice in Palestine.
