Join us as Dr. Sabia McCoy-Torres guides us in conversation with representatives from the Garifuna community in New Orleans. With this panel, we hope to learn more about how Garifuna people preserve their identity and culture in both Honduras and the United States, understand how local Garifuna people navigate a transnational existence as a marginalized group in both Honduras and the United States, and learn how they build community here in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

We are hosting a conversation with Maurice Chammah and Mirya Holman, where they will discuss their work, "Does Your Sheriff Think He is More Powerful than the President?" Please find more information about their research findings here.
