Blackness and Interwar Asia: A Mobius Strip of Identity Building

Join Asia Society Southern California for a discussion on the interplay between Blackness, Asia, and identity formation in the Interwar period with author Amy Sommers and historian Keisha A. Brown. Professor Brown will further explore the context for how anti-imperialism and Black internationalism of that period shaped both Black Americans’ sense of identity, as well as emerging ideas of Asian nationalism and identity. The conversation will be moderated by Cleopatra Wise, Director for Asia Society’s Center for Global Education, China Learning Initiatives.
