Black Power in Trinidad: Resistance in the Diaspora
Aniyah Williams, Africana Studies
Faculty Mentor: Professor Marcus Watson, Africana Studies
My presentation topic is the Black Power Movement in Trinidad. With an autobiographical connection to Trinidad myself, I have been enthusiastic about learning of my brave and game-changing Afro-Caribbean heritage. My project provides details about the history of Trinidad’s Black Power Movement, including its origins in the intersectional race and class discriminations on the island, racist confrontations faced by Trinidadian students in Canada, and the street protests in Trinidad itself. My presentation expands research into the African Diaspora and contributes to intersectional perspectives on race and class.
