In this groundbreaking book, Cynthia J. Becker addresses the historical consciousness of subaltern groups and how they give Blackness material form through modes of dress, visual art, religious ceremonies, and musical instruments in performance. Blackness in Morocco complicates how we think about the institution of slavery and its impact on North African religious and social institutions.

It promises to be a fun and engaging discussion on the topic. Come ready to learn and with your questions!
