This event will be held virtually, via an online livestream with Zoom.
The fate of the South Asian American community is inextricably linked with the struggle against anti-Black racism in the United States. Through stories from the archive, SAADA Co-Founder and Executive Director, Samip Mallick, will demonstrate the urgent need for solidarities between South Asians and Black Americans and the work that needs to be done within our community.
Samip Mallick is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of SAADA, which for the last 12 years has worked to document, preserve, and share stories from the South Asian American community. At a time when the role of immigration in American society is being questioned, SAADA’s work serves as a powerful response to the question of who belongs.
