Dickinson College Hosts Panel Discussion on Racial Inequalities in Multiracial Societies of the Americas

Do multiracial majorities mean the end of racial discrimination?

by Gabriella Farrell '21

Dickinson will host a panel of experts to discuss the racism that exists in the Americas despite the growth of multiracial populations. The talk will happen Wednesday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium.

Panelists will discuss the realities of racial politics in the Americas, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean, where the existence of multiracial majorities does not necessarily mean the end of racial discrimination. The experts will also address how the U.S. can learn from existing racial inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Santiago Anria, assistant professor of political science and Latin American studies at Dickinson, will serve as moderator. His research focuses on social movements, political parties, and democracy in Latin America.


  • Tanya Katerí Hernández is the Archibald R. Murray Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law. Her scholarly interests include the study of comparative race relations and anti-discrimination law.
  • Stacey Moultry is visiting assistant professor in American studies at Dickinson. Her doctoral project examined the work of self-identified mixed-race authors, playwrights and visual artists of African descent from the 1960s through the 1980s and how they understood notions of racial and cultural hybridity in the midst of emerging arts and social movements.
  • Eric Vázquez is assistant professor in American studies and a contributing faculty member to Dickinson’s Latin American, Latino & Caribbean studies program. His scholarship emphasizes the cultural, political, military and economic bonds that link populations and institutions in the U.S. to Central America.

The event is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the departments of English; American studies; Latin American, Latino & Caribbean studies; political science; and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Inclusivity.
