Identity and Searching for Black Lives in the Archives in the Words of LaNitra Berger and Maaza Mengiste

A conversation between Maaza Mengiste, Fulbright 2010 and author of the novel, The Shadow King, which shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize and was a 2020 LA Times Book Prize Fiction finalist, and LaNitra Berger, an award-winning scholar, social justice advocate, and Fulbright Program Advisor, and moderated by Timothy Martin, Board Member of the U.S.-Italy Fulbright Commission and a performer and teacher of over 30 years. The authors will discuss race and identity and the need to "decolonize” the archives and focus on how Maaza’s book was shaped by her Fulbright experience in Italy. The conversation will also expand to encompass issues of diversity and identity in contemporary Italy.
