At a moment of transnational racial reckoning, this listening session explores black frequency as a site of possibility. It engages black frequency in multiple forms: as a sonic space that ranges from silence to deafening, dissonant noise; as a register of ecstatic rapture and spirituality; as a temporal feedback loop of memory, repetition, and renewal; as a dynamic relation of call and response, or chorus and verse; as a haptic and kinetic space of contact and connection across the African continent and its various diasporas.
As museums reimagine how anthropology interprets Africa and “Blackness,” they are wrestling with both the residues of historical race science and the realities of anti-Black racism in America today. For anthropologists working in museums this “decolonizing the museum” approach means balancing anthropology as a science against pseudoscientific notions of Africa and “Blackness” that museums and anthropology helped to visually codify in the popular imagination.
Continuing this year’s ¡Fiesta Latina! programming and curated in partnership with Colectivo Bambula, this panel will bring together Latinx professionals across the diaspora working to challenge anti-Blackness in Latinx culture, highlighting the dynamic work of organizers, educators, artists, and freedom fighters.

As we look to 2021, we collectively navigate the iterations of our present moment more intentionally than ever before.
