Our Latest NACLA Report: #BlackLivesMatter Across the Hemisphere - plus our latest web coverage!


Dear Naclistas,

We are thrilled to announce the release of the latest NACLA Report: #BlackLivesMatter Across the Hemisphere.

Racial justice movements for Black lives go far beyond the hashtag - and far beyond the boundaries of the United States. This crucial and timely issue takes a deep-dive into the connections between—and impact of—these movements, from Cuba to Haiti to Colombia to the Andes. 

The Report features articles by scholars and activists working across the region about a movement centuries in the making, with analyses of current events like La Sentencia in the Dominican Republic, the legacies of racism and anti-racism in post-Fidel Cuba, what Afro-Colombians stand to gain and lose from the historic peace deal, and much more.

In addition to the Report, this issue features an essay about the historic roots of Trump's wall and a forum reflecting on Fidel Castro's legacies in the wake of his passing.

If you haven't already, subscribe to NACLA to receive the quarterly print magazine. (If you are already a subscriber, thank you! Your magazine should arrive in the next few weeks.) Stay tuned for a selection of articles available open access on NACLA.org.

Plus, if you're in the New York area, don't miss our launch event featuring Chilean songwriter Nano Stern, in collaboration with Verso Books, this Friday in Brooklyn!

Here's our latest web content, where we're keeping a close eye on immigration justice issues and other developing news stories in the Latinx U.S. and across the Americas.

En solidaridad,

The editors
