Pirates of the Caribbean: Roberto Clemente & the Black Sporting Diaspora

March 1, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the Barnard Forum on Migration for a lecture by Frank Guridy, entitled “Pirates of the Caribbean: Roberto Clemente & the Black Sporting Diaspora.”

Frank Guridy is a Visiting Associate Professor at Columbia University. He specializes in sport history, urban history, and the history of the African Diaspora in the Americas. Frank is the author of Forging Diaspora: Afro-Cubans and African Americans in a World of Empire and Jim Crow (University of North Carolina Press, 2010), which won the 2009-11 Elsa Goveia Book Prize from the Association of Caribbean Historians and the 2011 Wesley-Logan Book Prize conferred by the American Historical Association in January. He is also the co-editor of Beyond el Barrio: Everyday Life in Latino/a America (NYU Press, 2010). He has published essays in the Radical History Review, Caribbean Studies, Social Text, and Cuban Studies. His recent research has moved into the realm of sport history: a history of race and masculinity in Black Diasporic sporting cultures; and a book-length study of the role of stadiums in U.S. cities also during the 20th century.
