"Race/Ethnicity and Gender Identity in a Shifting Cultural, and Racial Climate: African/Black Diaspora Academic and Public Discourse" Seminar Welcome Launch



Event Date: April 2, 2021, 1-2 PM

All are invited to attend the "Race/Ethnicity and Gender Identity in a Shifting Cultural, and Racial Climate: African/Black Diaspora Academic and Public Discourse" Seminar Welcome Launch, scheduled for Friday, April 2, 2021, 1-2 PM.

With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the University of Maryland African American Studies Department interdisciplinary project "Race/Ethnicity and Gender Identity in a Shifting Cultural, and Racial Climate: African/Black Diaspora Academic and Public Discourse" is exploring a wide variety of perspectives gained from addressing a central question: How are nationality and the specifics of distinctly diverse ethnicities and gender formations reshaping the framing of identity among first- and second-generation African immigrants and in their relationships with native-born U.S. African American populations in the 21st century?

Join us for a discussion about African/ Black Identity and how to learn more about the Seminar.

Dr. Sharon Harley, Project Director and Principal Investigator, will discuss the scope and vision of the project. Two of the current seminar participants Dr. Martin Summers (Boston University) and La’Kayla Williams (The University of Texas at Austin) will share works in progress: “Hip-Hop and Gender Identity Formation among Second-Generation African Immigrant Male Youth” and “The Work: Southern Black Aesthetics, Popular Culture, and Afro-Diasporic Religiosity.” Presentations will be followed by Q&A. We hope to see you there!

Join the conversation online, across platforms, and using #BlkDiasporaID
