Fascism & Racism: Intimate Partners in Modern Politics

Presented by the Department of Africana Studies, the Center for Africana Studies, Penn Program on Race, Science, and Society, and the Marginalized Populations Project.

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.

Speakers include Nicola Ismaila Dieng, Daryl Lamont Jenkins, and Jessika Rezende Souza. 

Cosponsored by the Cinema and Media Studies Program, the Latin American and Latino Studies Program, and the Wolf Humanities Center.
