Afro-indigenous History Of The United States

During the Black and Red Power eras, Black and Indigenous peoples used solidarity as a means of imagining freedom from oppression and since that time, have remained close allies in the fight for justice. Covering the civil rights movement and freedom struggles of the 1960s and 70s, Afro-Indigenous historian Kyle T. Mays explores current debates around the use of Native American imagery and the cultural appropriation of Black culture. His talk will explore the history of Black and Indigenous activism, and their continued relationships through various forms of popular culture well into the present.
