Challenges and Opportunities for the New American Majority
Saturday, December 9 • 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue
This conference will focus on the ways in which issues of race are implicated in the ongoing debates on immigration and related policy concerns. Three panels of distinguished speakers will address themes related to present-day immigration including demographic changes and the coming non-white majority; the changing nature of the Black population and new Black immigration; Black-Latino relations; and the potential role of Afro-Latinos. This event is presented by the Afro-Latin@ Project at Queens College, CUNY, the Institute for Global Education in Metropolitan Settings (IGEMS) at NYU, and the DuBois Center for African American Studies at Harvard, and hosted by El Museo and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
