This panel discussion is an outgrowth of a graduate level course in Africana Studies on the relationship between fascism and racism. With xenophobic fascistic and white supremacist movements increasing in strength and frequency in several regions of the world, this panel will explore these interconnected phenomena through the lens of activists from three different countries with very distinct political cultures and histories of right and left wing mobilization: The United States, Italy and Brazil.
Featuring: Jessika Rezende Souza, Nicola Ismaila Dieng, Daryl Lamont Jenkins
