Paul Ortiz: The Making of an African American and Latinx History of the United States

Event date

Contact person: Christy Waldkirch

An African American and Latinx History of the United States is a new interpretation of US history that builds on earlier generations of ethnic studies scholarship. An intersectional history of the shared struggle for human rights from 1776 to present, the book is an accessible narrative history arguing that Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa were integral to the development of democracy in the United States. From this grassroots perspective, ordinary people sought to build bridges of solidarity between the nations—not walls. Ortiz will discuss how the book is being integrated into college and high school social studies curricula seeking inclusiveness and historical accuracy.
