Guiding question: How does racial capitalism work to obscure cross-racial solidarities? How have cross-racial solidarities formed, in spite of this? What is required for racial solidarities? What have historical forms of cross-racial solidarities looked like? What might cross-racial solidarities look like today? Taking into consideration the readings from Robinson, Liu and Shange, and the Letters for Black Lives Collective, as well as previous weeks’ readings, reflect on this question using 250 words minimum (you may go over!) and produce at least two questions or connections to other readings, personal experiences, contemporary politics, other parts of history, or pieces of pop culture.
