Cardi-B and Politics
February 10, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Mitchell Center for African American Heritage at the Delaware Historical Society presents a conversation with Shantee Rosado.
In this talk, she will examine Cardi B’s engagement with politics and how it has been received by the general public, political pundits, and politicians. Analyzing these instances using Black feminist theorizing, she argues that Cardi’s engagement with politics, and the backlash she has received following these moments, highlight the stereotyping and devaluation of Black women’s, and more specifically, Black Latinas’ voices in the U.S. political sphere.
Shantee Rosado is the U.S. Afro-Latinidades Post-doctoral Fellow in Latinx Studies at Williams College. She received a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from Macalester College and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. Her current book project, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and the Emotional Politics of Race and Blackness in the U.S., examines how collective emotions shape the racial and political ideologies of second-generation Puerto Ricans and Dominicans in Central Florida.
