Who is Anton de Kom? Who is Eddie Bruma? What can Suriname, one of the least examined countries in Latin America, teach us about the Black Lives Matter movement? The LMC seeks to find that out by speaking with Sam Battistoli, a freelance journalist based in Suriname.
Nicole Ramsey, a PhD candidate in African American & African Diaspora Studies @ the University of California in Berkeley, speaks with the LMC to discuss how Black Lives Matter in Belize challenges the conventions of Central American history and identity.
The LMC has the honor of spending the hour with Gregoria Flores, the former head of OFRANEH, the Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras. She shares with us the latest in the Garifuna struggle for social justice against the illegitimate Honduran coup government and what Black Lives Matter means to Afro-Hondurans.
