Black Dispossession: A Global Perspective
a talk with Keisha-Khan Perry (C’98)
Brown University, Africana Studies and Anthropology

Black dispossession (loss of land/territorial rights, housing evictions, gentrification) represents a form of anti-black violence devastating black communities throughout the Americas.

Join Professor Keisha-Khan Perry (C’98) as she draws from examples in Brazil, Jamaica, and the United States, to show how latent and subtle forms of aggression buttress the unequal social order, and how Black women are key political protagonists in the fight against this aggression.
