Niambi Michele Carter - American While Black: African Americans, Immigration, and the Limits of Citizenship — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 3, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Carter’s groundbreaking study draws on public opinion data and interviews to formulate the first theory on African American feelings about immigration. Assistant professor of political science at Howard University, Carter has focused on racial and ethnic politics in the U.S. and her analysis shows that, for Black Americans, immigration has often reinforced a sense of their own limited inclusion in the body politic. While Black people have often seemed ambivalent or even negative about immigrants, however, a deeper examination shows that these attitudes in fact reflect how the white power structure constrains minorities, causing them to critique each other rather than the dominant group.
