Details

The Department of Political Science and International Relations, would like to invite you to participate in the 2020-2021 USD Race, Ethnicity, and Politics Speaker Series. This is the inaugural year of the series as it aims to examine the power of race and ethnicity to shape society and politics at the local level, at the international level, and comparatively.

Our second guest speaker, Niambi Carter (Howard University) will discuss her award-winning book, American While Black: African Americans, Immigration and the Limits of Citizenship. In the book, Dr. Carter argues that immigration serves as a reminder of the limited inclusion of African Americans in the body politic. As Carter contends, blacks use the issue of immigration as a way to understand the nature and meaning of their American citizenship-specifically the way that white supremacy structures and constrains not just their place in the American political landscape, but their political opinions as well. Dr. Carter draws on original interview material and empirical data on African American political opinion to offer the first theory of black public opinion toward immigration.
