Diasporic Routes and Nappy Tales in Okinawa: Reflections on Reading and Writing the Black Pacific
Mitzi Uehara Carter - Assistant Teaching Professor of East Asian Studies and Anthropology, Florida International University

The radical framework of the Black Pacific offers a unique way to make sense of the multiple afterlives brought together in the heavily militarized island of Okinawa, Japan. This talk will focus on key lessons learned while researching and writing about the entanglements of Black and Asian intimacies, colonialities, and forms of anti-Blackness in Okinawa. Carter will also discuss how the Black Pacific, as a conceptual lens, gives scholars of Okinawa a way to raise better questions about the legacy of White supremacy in the Pacific and better analysis of the persistence and vitality of Black life and imaginaries in Japan.
