Afrodescendientes: Black Consciousness in Venezuela

Afrodescendientes: Black Consciousness in Venezuela

Playing tracks by

Aretha Franklin.

On today's podcast we chat with Nadia Mosquera Muriel who is a Ph.D. candidate at the university of Sussex. Nadia gave us a very informative talk on the social and political history and current material conditions of the African-descended population in her home country of Venezuela. Giving us an overview of black Venezuelans' relationship to the State and its recognized citizen subjects, namely, European elites and colonized natives, we also covered the enduring ideology of mestijaze, the symbolic impact of Hugo Chavez' presidency, the meaning of decolonization for the slave, and the continued resistance of Afrodescendientes to generalized misrecogniton by fostering a black consciousness.
