Ep 04: Diasporic Tensions

This week we have our friend Havanna Fisher in the studio to help us unpack the decades old tensions between the African American community and black immigrant community. We discuss things such as the false notion of America as the “Land of Opportunity” for immigrants while being a place of oppression for African Americans, representations of blackness on screen, and how blackness is defined in each community. We realize this conversation centers the Afro-Caribbean immigrant experience and would be open to continuing this conversation in a later episode incorporating the perspectives of individuals from the African continent send us your comments!
