Shontay Delalue, "Assumed to be ‘Black’: The Racial Categorization of African & Caribbean Students"

CSREA Conference Room, Hillel 303, 80 Brown Street

What I Am Thinking About Now: Dr. Shontay Delalue, Assistant Dean of the College, Director of International Student & Visitor Experience

The study being discussed will look at the experiences of students from the African Atlantic Diaspora whose primary way of identifying racially conflicted with the racial categorization of ‘Black’ in the U.S. Using a critical race theory and racial formation lens, the history of the U.S. Census racial categories and the social definition of ‘Black’ will be explored.

What I Am Thinking About Now is an on-going informal workshop/seminar series to which faculty and graduate students are invited to present and discuss recently published work and work in progress.
