Events from the past year in the United States indicate that far from being a “post-racial” society the United States continues to function as a white supremacist, settler state. The rise of Donald Trump and his not so subtle courting of the alt-right, the growth of extremist groups and the rise of Nazi and Klan organizations, hyper-militarized police response to the Black Lives Matter Protests as well as efforts to build a wall on the Southern border amongst other examples are indicative of the way race operates in the United States. In addition, we recognize the powerful historical precedents have been structured race relations of our moment. These organized sessions explores the ways in which rearticulations of white supremacy are tied to historically grounded geographic realities of race and empire in the (re)making of America.
