Part of the University of Rochester’s Mellon Sawyer Seminar series, “Unbordering Migration in the Americas,” this discussion seminar will put Black and Native experiences and creative practices in dialogue. Leading discussion will be UCLA Professor Mishuana Goeman (Tonawanda Band of Seneca) and Spelman College Professor Cheryl Finley, who will pre-circulate a selection of critical texts and artwork with the intention of initiating a conversation between the ways Black and Native artists speak to questions of memory, trauma, ritual, belonging, and possible futures in their representations of movement and displacement. 

This seminar will take place in-person at UR’s Humanities Center. All are welcome.
