Join us to examine the changing meanings of Blackness in Israel, Africa and the USA. Among the questions we will consider are:
-What are the meanings of "Blackness" in Israel? How are they in
conversation with the way the concept plays out in America, Africa, and
-What role has the idea of "Blackness" played in the formation of the
identities of Israel's different communities - Mizrachim, Ashkenazim,
Ethiopian, Palestinian? How has it been used in movements for social
justice in Israel?
- How does this help us have constructive conversations around questions
of race, ethnicity, religion, and nationality in Israel and in the USA?
Moderated by Dr. Yuval Evri.
Cosponsored by the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, the School of Arts and Sciences Co-Curricular Fund and the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
