2020 will be remembered not just for the pandemic, but also as a year of radical anti-racist uprisings, under the banner of Black Lives Matter (BLM), in the US and beyond. A unique panel of leading anti-racist scholars and activists from Brazil, the US, the UK and Morocco will share from their own experiences of struggle and discuss how we can build long-lasting transformative racial justice movements.

This webinar will reflect on some of the thought-provoking insights in a paper by Ilyas Nagdee and Azfar Shafi, Recovering Anti-racism, which argued that neoliberalism, individualism and professionalisation of 'race relations' has up to now fragmented anti-racist movements and undermined solidarity. What can we learn from the struggles and successes of movements like Black Lives Matter as well as the obstacles they continue to face to deliver real change? How do we rebuild solidarity and internationalism in anti-racist struggles? How can we  integrate anti-racism within a broad project for emancipation against the twin ills of capitalism and imperialism?

Panellists:

  • Ilyas Nagdee,  activist, writer with a focus on policing, security and antiracism, former Black Students Officer for the National Union of Students, UK
  • Juliana Borges, Author of "Encarceramento em massa” (Mass Incarceration) and “Prisões: espelhos de nós" (Prisons: Mirrors of us) and columnist of Claudia Magazine, Brazil.
  • Miriyam Aouragh, Anthropologist, internet researcher, anti-racist campaigner, Morocco/Netherlands
  • Khury Petersen-Smith, activist and researcher at Institute for Policy Studies who focuses on Black liberation, Palestine solidarity, and ending US empire.
