Afro-Latinx Identity

Dialogues of the African Diaspora: From African Americans to Afro-Latinx

This course will explore African American, Latin American and Latinx relations and the ways in which these interactions challenge cultural and historical divisions through literary, historic and cultural dialogues in particular that incorporate literature, film and music.  The course will trace intersections of African Americans and Latinx persons in the U.S. from African American visions of Latin America and Afro-Latinx visions of the U.S. and the African diaspora to Afro-Latinx persons as citizens navigating two worlds.
