VIRTUAL: Monkia Gosin, ‘Interethnic Struggles for Legitimacy in Multicultural Miami’
April 9 at 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History will host Monika Gosin for its 2020 Author’s Discussion Series. She will be talking about her book The Racial Politics of Division: Interethnic Struggles for Legitimacy in Multicultural Miami. The event is free and open to the public.
Book Description: The Racial Politics of Division deconstructs antagonistic discourses that circulated in local Miami media between African Americans, “white” Cubans, and “black” Cubans during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift and the 1994 Balsero Crisis. Monika Gosin challenges exclusionary arguments pitting these groups against one another and depicts instead the nuanced ways in which identities have been constructed, negotiated, rejected, and reclaimed in the context of Miami’s historical multiethnic tensions.
