The UAINE and NAICOB 2022 Indigenous Liberation Speaker Series presents:
A Black History Month Special Presentation with Professor Kyle T. Mays, author of “An Afro-Indigenous History of the US”

For Black History Month, hear Professor Kyle T. Mays, author of “An Afro-Indigenous History of the US.” His presentation will be, “‘Where have all the Indians gone?’ Afro-Indigenous History and Urban Experiences”

February 24 at 5:30 pm EST.


Prof. Mays is Afro-Indigenous (Saginaw Anishnaabe) and is an Assistant Professor at UCLA. His groundbreaking book about US Afro-Indigenous history should be on every bookshelf!
Reviews have said:
“Nuanced and illuminating, this book is a worthy addition to a remarkable series.”
“This book reveals uncomfortable truths about the dehumanizing legacies of both capitalism and colonialism while forging a path of reconciliation between the Black and Native communities. Mays offers a solid entry point for further study. An enlightening reexamination of American history.”
“Accessible and informative . . . Mays’s colloquial voice enlivens the often-distressing history . . . This immersive revisionist history sheds light on an overlooked aspect of the American past.”
This is a special Black History Month presentation brought to you by the United American Indians of New England (UAINE) and the North American Indian Center of Boston (NAICOB) 2022 Indigenous Liberation Speaker Series.

We started the 2022 series in January with a powerful panel on the MA Indigenous Legislative Agenda bills, and will have presentations throughout this year. Please join us on February 24!
