The Cabildos Speaker Series presents a talk by Prof. Youssef Carter, Assistant Professor & Kenan Rifai Fellow in Islamic Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill. Carter's talk will explore the multiple ways that Black religious symbolism and varying ethical groundings are deployed in both insurgent and assimilative contexts through Hip-hop music. The talk will comment on questions of capitalist excess, ethno-nationalism and migrant politics, racial capitalism, carceral state surveillance and counter-citizenship, all in relation to Black religious politics.
