#Papuanlivesmatter: Youth Political Movements and Black Consciousness in West Papua

After the brutal killing of George Floyd sparked anti-racism protests around the world, Black youths organized their own protests in West Papua, Indonesia’s marginalized and easternmost region. Since then, Papuans have used the hashtag #Papuanlivesmatter to articulate their connection with broader anti-racism protests across the world and to bring the Papuan experience to #BlackLivesMatter movements.

Please join us for a talk and discussion with Dr. Veronika Kusumaryati, who holds a PhD in anthropology from Harvard University and is a postdoctoral fellow at Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University.

If you would like to join the discussion, please RSVP to receive the Zoom link.
