Native American and Black people are often invisible in museums and public monuments, though they are integral to this nation’s history and future. Join us for a conversation that highlights differences and overlaps in the lived experiences of Black and Native peoples in Boston and beyond. Learn about current and historical bonds between Black and Native communities from scholars and thought leaders who identify as Black, Native, and Afro-Native.

Dr. Tiffany Lethabo King, performing artist, filmmaker, and associate professor at Georgia State University, author of The Black Shoals, a powerful work considering film and novels through a lens combining Diasporic Black Studies and Indigenous Studies

Mary McNeil (Mashpee Wampanoag), PhD candidate at Harvard University, whose research focuses on Black, Native, and Afro-Native claims to space in Massachusetts

Mwalim Morgan James Peters (Mashpee Wampanoag), associate professor at UMass Dartmouth, author of Mixed Medicine Bag, a book of tales from his Wampanoag and Bajan cultures
