The Departament of Geography at Rutgers-New Brunswick and the organizing commitee of the McGrann-USF Global Black Geographies Conference  are excited to bring together a global network of researchers and activists interested in Black geographic studies and activist interventions against the racialized power dynamics that perpetuate devaluation, extraction, expropriation and marginalization of Black lives and majority-Black places. 

The conference will highlight critical scholars and community organizers who foreground Black Studies epistemologies in their work, notably by drawing on the vital insights of social movement participants in our collective knowledge production. Featuring scholars and activists from the US, Brazil, and the Caribbean, the conference will develop and strengthen scholar-activist collaboration across these Black diasporic spaces.
