TRGGR hosts Chris Tinson and Sujani Reddy speak with Robin D.G. Kelley (Gary B. Nash Professor of American History at UCLA) and J. Kehaulani Kauanui (Associate Professor of American Studies and Anthropology at Wesleyan University), members of the recent delegation of five distinguished scholars from the United States who went on a fact finding mission to Palestine organized by the United States Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel. In addition to professors Kelley and Kauanui, the delegation included Neferti Tadiar, Bill Mullen, and Nikhil Pal Singh. You can read their full statement here. How does this boycott compare with other movements throughout history? What’s at stake for those who express public support for the boycott? How is this effort connected with broader struggles for social justice such as indigenous rights, black radical politics, and the occupy movement? These and other questions are discussed throughout the hour-long conversation. Be sure to also check out the track “Al Kufiyyeh” by Shadia Mansour featuring M-1 at the end of the interview. Enjoy!
