Being Mix-ish in Europe

Being Mix-ish in Europe

@ Virginia Room

November 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join Dr. Vanessa Stout as she explores her experiences in Europe as a bi-racial women. She will discuss how black immigrants integrate into a new urban space. Moreover, she will not just explain the process of belonging, rather she argues incorporating and creating home in these cities is what Bel Hooks titles, ‘a site of resistance’ in urban spaces. Hooks argues the creation of building home where blacks can both ‘grow and develop’ in a place where a strong racial hierarchy is in itself an important role in resistance.
