BLACK EUROPE — PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE

In politics, media, and scholarship, Europe has often been portrayed as a homogeneous white and Christian continent. This ideology, dating back to the medieval crusades, distorts the historical reality of Europe’s multi-cultural and multi-religious past and present. This two-year lecture series contributes to a shift in the popular and scholarly imagination by bringing leading scholars, artists, and activists of Black Europe to our campus.  Collectively, they foreground the centuries-long presence of peoples of African descent in Europe as well as their contemporary cultural expressions and political concerns.
