What lessons are there in comparative social constructs, movements for Black liberation, and state and organizational responses to individual and systemic racism and anti-Blackness? This workshop will engage experts on Cuba and the U.S. on:
  • The social construction of race and the applicability/limitations of critical legal and race theory outside of the U.S.                
  • Movements for Black lives and the comparative trajectories of fights against anti-Blackness in Cuba and the U.S.             
  • Dismantling structural racism and anti-Blackness through institutional, political and social interventions
