I’d like to share my novel with you because it contains a great deal of Latin American history and politics.

"In the 1980s, many countries in Latin America were struggling to break free from decades of dictatorial rule by despots propped up by the U.S. government. In the Land of the Feathered Serpent is the story of a bright but naïve young biologist with an oversized libido who finds himself on a Homeric journey of discovery in Central America and Mexico during this time."

This novel will be of particular interest to those engaged with International Studies, Political Studies, History, and Romance Studies/Literature of Latin America.

In March 1863 heroic abolitionist and statesman Frederick Douglass, calls Black men to enlist in the Civil War, and fight for racial justice: “They tell you this is the ‘White man’s war’; that you will be no ‘better off after than before the war’; that the getting of you into the army is to sacrifice you on the first opportunity.’ Believe them not … “

Half a century later - across the Americas - the likes of Paul Robeson (USA), J.R.B. Whitney (Canada), and T. E. Marryshow (British West Indies [Caribbean]), inspire 300,000+ descendants of enslaved Africans to put their lives on the line in the First World War. Why did they enlist? Have they shaped attitudes and communities today?

Our ‘Mutiny’ resource features rare video interviews with Black British WW1 veterans, along with a wealth of supporting sources for exploring these and other questions.

Dr. Monica Styles welcomes Dr. Bárbara I. Abadía-Rexach of San Francisco State University, a writer and expert on the topic of Afro-Latinxs, who will speak on “#LasVidasNegrasImportan: Colonization and Blackness in Puerto Rico.” Co-sponsored by HISP, LACS, AAST, and FYE.

#LasVidasNegrasImportan: Colonization and Blackness in Puerto Rico

The archipelago of Puerto Rico was a Spanish colony from 1493 to 1898; since then, it has been a colony of the United States. Anti-Black racism is a cruel reality that evidently Black Puerto Ricans suffer on a daily basis. Outside Puerto Rico, lighter skinned Puerto Ricans are interpellated and racialized as non-white citizens meaning they are not categorized as neither Americans. Bárbara Abadía-Rexach explores racialization in Puerto Rico through the #BLM movement and other antiracist, decolonial, and Afro-feminist initiatives.

Dr. Bárbara I. Abadía-Rexach is an Assistant Professor of AfroLatinidades in the Latina/ Latino Studies Department at San Francisco State University. She received her Ph.D. from the Anthropology Department at The University of Texas at Austin. She is a native Black Puerto Rican writer and public intellectual. Her research focuses on Afro-Latinxs, Latinxs in the U.S., Latin American Studies, Racialization, Blackness, Identity Formation, Popular Culture, Music & Race in Puerto Rico, Media Studies, Black Hispanic Caribbean & African Diaspora. She is the author of Musicalizando la raza. La racialización en Puerto Rico a través de la música (Ediciones Puerto, 2012). She is currently working on a book manuscript, Saluting the Drum! The New Puerto Rican Bomba Movement, that examines discourses of blackness and its intersectionalities with national, cultural, racial, and gender identities in Puerto Rico through bomba music. Abadía-Rexach is a member of the Black Latinas Know Collective and Colectivo Ilé. She collaborates with Afroféminas (https://afrofeminas.com/), Todas (https://www.todaspr.com/), and produces the radio program NEGRAS (https://www.wrtu.pr/programas/negras/).

BOOK TALK WITH
JOHN GARRISON MARKS

Prior to the abolition of slavery, thousands of African-descended people in the Americas lived in freedom.

John Garrison Marks works for the American Association for State and Local History and holds a Ph.D. in history from Rice University.

Dr. William McCorkle discusses his recent trip to the makeshift migrant camp in Matamoros, Mexico that was created after the MPP (Remain in Mexico) policy last year. Particular focus is placed on the stories of those trapped in this camp, the human rights and legal issues that this policy has raised, and the implications for citizens and educators in responding to this crisis. Dr. McCorkle is an assistant professor of education at the College of Charleston. His research interests center on rights for immigrant students and immigration pedagogy, particularly related to the American Southeast.
