Black Lives, Black Liberation and the Indivisibility of Justice came about in the process of Al-Adab developing its most recent file on “The US in Depth,” with its urgent emphasis on making the current historical moment, focusing on Black liberation and Black freedom struggle. Black liberation and indeed anti-colonial, anti-racist and anti-imperialist US struggles have been understood and embraced by Arab readers/publics in a comparative and historically contextualized theoretical and activist perspectives. This roundtable seeks to address some of these issues and more.

The roundtable will focus on the following questions/issues:

1) Defining the moment in context of the US and various systems of oppression
2) Placing the moment in international context (historically and contemporarily)
3) Bringing up international movements and solidarities
4) Linking Palestine and Arab/Third World anti-colonial and anti-authoritarian movements
5) What does solidarity mean and how do we enact it?
