Black Pasts and Futurity: AfroLatinx Contributions to the Black Intellectual Tradition

Conceptions of racialized Spanish speakers in the United States are often void of Blackness and Black subjectivities. Drawing from Black intellectual thought as a point of departure, Dr. Chris Busey reviews foundational underpinnings towards examining Black Latinidad in the U.S. He proposes several implications for how educators can build from these traditions to further engage the sociopolitics of race and challenge static as well as exclusive conceptions of Latinidad in curriculum, teaching, and research.
