While America claims to be a melting pot, in reality the United States was the first country to introduce legal definitions for race based on ethnicity as opposed to nation of origin. What happens when you can check more than one ethnic box? Mwalim will give a talk on the past and present relationship and interactions of Black and Native people, the social and political wedge that society has tried to impose between the groups, and the experiences of growing up and living Black and Wampanoag during the 1976 landsuit, to the most recent act against the Mashpee tribe by the BIA under the Trump administration.

This talk will take place via ZOOM. Registration is required.
