Protests, Panthers, and Politics: Rethinking Blackness in Israel
Join Schusterman Center for Israel Studies to examine the changing meanings of Blackness in Israel, Africa and the USA. Among the questions they 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 Europe?
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?
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.
