Race & Identity in Mexico

Dialogues in Afrolatinidad by Michele Reid Vazquez

Episode notes
Dr. Ashley Ngozi Agbasoga, Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University, joins guest host, Israel Herndon, to discuss how her inquisitive nature motivated her ethnographic research. Dr. Agbasoga argues that the Mexican state’s policies about race are not reflective of Black and Indigenous Mexicans. In addition, she explains how participating in the 2022 NEH Summer Institute: Transnational Dialogues in Afro-Latin American and Afro-Latinx Studies opened her mind to other research possibilities.
