Letter: With a free Barbados, free Palestine

(12/02/21 5:56am)

And there we have it! As we celebrate one day of The Barbados Republic, I challenge the Zionist movement to reconsider the violence of borders. Border violence, especially militancy backed up by the US, reminds us that colonialism is still amongst us and within every powerful room. Violence is not the only way to lobby and organize for any struggling people; there is always another option. Resistance is colonial vengeance, and we certainly can differentiate them by looking at the roots.


Letter: Colonial nationalism, in Israel or anywhere, is always anti-Black

(11/18/21 12:03am)

Nationalism, not nations, will always be anti-Black as colonialism is rooted in the rejection of African ways of knowing: ontologies, episteme and hierarchies. Both Palestine, and especially Israel contend with anti-Blackness. To label it, some Jews adamantly refute African Jewish existences, thus I am positive that migratism -- prejudice based solely on migration -- will exist even as they allow Jewish nationals. Similarly, to some of my Arab friends: tell me about the Algerian/afroarabs and your ideals about Black skin, and how they materially translate. 


In solidarity with international students

(07/08/20 4:00am)

The past few months have been exhausting, especially for Black students across America. At Duke, we have received multiple emails regarding the university’s solidarity with Black students, which have included actionable plans to support us as we continue to be a part of this community. Despite these gestures of support being long overdue, we acknowledge them. In conjunction with these mechanisms of support and in solidarity with Black students, we as DukeAfrica executive members demand Duke release a statement of action regarding the recent news from the U.S Immigration and Customs modifications to temporarily exempt non-immigrant international students from taking online classes due to the pandemic for the fall 2020 semester. We encourage all students, alumni and faculty to reach out to Mr. Chris Simmons, Associate Vice President of Government Relations at Duke University, to raise their concerns regarding the recent news, and demand Duke push back while offering actionable and transparent steps regarding their efforts against these racist police institutions.
