The “When I See Them I See Us” video functions much like a solidarity in struggle manifesto, articulating the ways in which both communities choose to stand together against forms of dehumanization that operate in similar ways in their respective contexts and working to present their liberations as tied. Beyond an internally affirming message, it can also prompt an outside audience to educate themselves as to the similarities of the two forms of oppression, that are tied structurally as well as in narrative.

If you’d like to learn more please read the press release for the video, as well as the learn more section of the Black-Palestinian Solidarity website.

Much of the work I will try to do this semester will focus on presenting the history of Palestinian and Black solidarity in a way that prompts a deeper understanding of both contexts in their similarities and differences.
