American Racism, As Viewed From Abroad

think.kera.org 3

When Civil Rights leaders are trying to get an idea across to Americans, a common strategy is to get American allies abroad onboard with the same idea. Brenda Gayle Plummer is a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the deeply rooted tradition of fighting anti-Black racism by appealing to other countries, and what the global protest movement means for our democracy. Her article “Civil Rights Has Always Been a Global Movement” was published in Foreign Affairs.
