Race, Justice, Solidarity, and the Question of Palestine

Noura Erakat (human rights attorney and Assistant Professor at George Mason University)

Robin D.G. Kelley (Distinguished Professor and Gary B. Nash Endowed Chair of American History at UCLA)

How does the question of Palestine help us think race, justice, and solidarity?

 Celebrating the publication of Noura Erakat’s Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine, this event discusses the history and current practices of the occupation and subjugation of Palestinians through race as an analytic category.

 What does the question of Palestine teach us about understanding international law as politics––as a tool of domination, but also a site susceptible to strategic deployment through legal work advancing progressive causes? How can we theorize anti-Blackness in relation to the question of Palestine? What historical imaginaries do increasingly public expressions of Black-Palestinian solidarity recall and re-signify? And what possibilities do these expressions of solidarity introduce for the effort to address injustice in Palestine today, and to create a more just world tomorrow?
