Professor Gonzalez-Rivera recently published an essay titled “Why My Nicaraguan Father Did Not ‘See’ His Blackness And How Latinx Anti-Black Racism Feeds On Racial Silence.” In this presentation she weaves together her personal experiences and her expertise as a trained historian of Latin America to shed light on why and how anti-Black racism permeates Central America and “Central American American” communities and why developing anti-racist coalitions in this context is so difficult but also so important.
