Negritud Trans Caribena (Trans Caribbean Blackness)

To close Black History Month, the Division of Modern Languages, in collaboration with the Global Studies Program and Student Senate, will host artivists Helen Ceballos and Johan Mijail for the artist talk Negritud Trans Caribeña (Trans Caribbean Blackness).

To fight racism and other forms of bigotry, Johan and Helen place themselves center stage while they examine how their experience as racialized Black, Queer and Migrants from the Hispanic Caribbean inform their practice. The event will be in Spanish, but an interpreter for English will be made available if needed. This event is also possible thanks to Cantiga Ediciones, Mezcolanza Inc., and Plataforma Eje.
