When I See Them, I See Us: Black Palestinian Solidarity in an Age of Struggle

Wednesday, February 22 | 6:30pm-8:30pm | Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts, 1 Washington Place

In October 2015, more than sixty Black and Palestinian scholars and activists released a video that drew attention to the common struggles of their communities against state-sanctioned violence and oppression. As ordinary people engaged in ordinary acts--selling cigarettes, sleeping, driving, going to school, or speaking politically--lose their lives for no other reason than their skin color or ethnicity, this declaration of solidarity resounded in the US, Palestine, and worldwide as a call for liberation from injustice.

Scholars and activists whose work informs this growing and critical international movement, including Ebony Coletu (Penn State), Noura Erakat (George Mason University), Alex Lubin (University of New Mexico), and Greg Thomas (Tufts University), will speak. 

This event is offered as a part of Gallatin’s Black History Month 2017 programming.

Cosponsored by the Urban Democracy Lab at the Gallatin School for Individualized Study and the NYU Chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine
