From Mao to Yao: Culture, Media, and Black Life in China
In this talk, Dr. Frazier will explore the experiences and representations of several Black
American and African people in Cold War & post-Cold War China. He argues that these
peoples' encounters, treatment, and narratives about China ( as well as the ways and uses to
which their images and narratives have been deployed by different Chinese stakeholders)
are generative sites to consider the circulation of ideas and performances of race and
blackness across international borders and the complex and ever shifting conditions and
contending ideologies of globalization.
