While anti-Blackness and racial hierarchies are global problems, each society has unique racial hierarchies, which may impact how immigrants integrate into their host countries. Doctoral student in sociology Cristine Khan will examine the similarities and differences in how anti-Blackness and racial hierarchies impact identity and community formation among second-generation Indo-Caribbeans in New York City and Toronto. She will conduct interviews, participant observation, and social media analysis for her project.
