Shorenstein Ctr Event: Racecraft. Castecraft. A Transnational Weapon to Criminalize and Dehumanize African American, Dalit, and Romani People
April 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
For centuries, racist or casteist ideologies have overlapped in the oppression of African Americans, Dalits, Romani people, and others. The racecraft of inferiority continues to be a powerful ideological weapon that ruling elites and dominant majorities have been using—intentionally and unintentionally, overtly or covertly—against historically oppressed groups. Join us for a panel discussion featuring:
- Cornel West – Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard University
- Suraj Yengde – Postdoctoral fellow at the Initiative for Institutional Anti-racism and Accountability, Shorenstein Center on Media
- Magda Matache – Instructor at the Harvard FXB Center for Health and Human Rights and the Director of the Roma Program at Harvard
- Khalil Gibran Muhammad (moderator) – Professor of History, Race and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School
