Romper el Hielo: Anti-Blackness & Colorism in the Latinx Community
Free | Zoom
"Romper El Hielo" means "Break the Ice" in Spanish. That's what the Latin Graduate Student Association (LGSA) is hoping to accomplish by addressing a difficult, but timely issue: Racism in the Hispanic/Latinx community. Discrimination based on class, which differed by the amount of Spanish blood in one's lineage, was hard-baked into Spain's colonial rule of Latin America. That class system has changed over time, but had lasting effects on attitudes that were brought into the United States. (LGSA) will be highlighting the experiences of Afro-Latinx students on campus and discussing what Anti-Blackness and Colorism looks like in the Latinx community, today.
Oct. 8 | 12:15 PM
