Event Image Every/Day Matters: Haunting and the Black Diasporic Experience
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Kimberly Alecia Singletary
Visiting Assistant Professor of Civic Communication & Media
Willamette University

When we think of haunting, we usually think of a ghost who comes from the dead to scare us to remind us to make amends for a long-past transgression. This talk discusses my concept of racial haunting—the process by which People of Color are living reminders of social, political, and racial injustices enacted against them by the countries in which they live. I compare the Black American and Afro-German populations as two instances of racial haunting in relation to the Black diasporic experience and its material presence in Germany. U.S. Blackness is represented in nearly every facet of German public culture from politics to street culture while Afro-Germans still fight to be recognized as both German and black. This talk also examines the larger global impact that U.S. Blackness has both on Afro-Germans and the larger African Diaspora. I ask: How can we effectively use the concept of racial haunting to productively discuss diasporic populations and their representation in the national media?
