Hawai'i Is My Haven: Race & Indigeneity in the Black Pacific

Nitasha Sharma

Event Poster
Nitasha Sharma (African American Studies & Asian American Studies, Northwestern) will be in conversation with a faculty member about her most recent monograph, Hawai’i Is My Haven: Race and Indigeneity in the Black Pacific. This book is an ethnography based on a decade of fieldwork including interviews with 60 people of African descent in the islands, including Black Hawaiians, Black Japanese, and African American transplants from the continental U.S. Two questions frame this project: What does the Pacific offer people of African descent? And how does the racial lens of African Americans illuminate inequalities, including anti-Black racism, in the islands? Bringing Black Studies into conversation with Native Studies, it charts how Hawai‘i’s Black residents, including Black hapas, negotiate race, indigeneity, and culture.
