Join us for a conversation with Dr. Lorgia García-Peña, author of two new books, Translating Blackness: Latinx Colonialities in Global Perspective (Duke, 2022) and Community as Rebellion (Haymarket, 2022), as well as The Borders of Dominicandad: Race, Nations, and Archives of Contradictions (Duke, 2016).

This is the first event of the yearlong Sawyer Mellon seminar here at Rutgers-NB, “Afterlives of Liberation: Antiracist Praxis for the 21st Century,” which explores how we talk about race and liberation in the academy, the arts, and activism fifty years after the Third World Liberation struggles of the late 1960s.
