Part of a series of events exploring the connections of intimacy, violence, cultural creativity, and political struggle that link together the African and Italian diasporas–from the influence of African American musical traditions on Italian American singers, to the influence of Black diasporic resources on contemporary Afro-Italian struggles for recognition, to the mobilizations of Eritreans in the United States and Italy to unearth hidden histories of Italian colonialism. Through film screenings, book talks, and lectures, this series approaches “Afro-Italy” as a complex, global contact zone.
Please join us on the occasion of the publication of the second edition of Pasolini Requiem!
