Blackness is Here and Everywhere: The Whiteness of Geography in the U.S. Academy

Kazon Robinson, SUNY Geneseo


This research studies the spatial relationship between geographic course content in NY State and HBCUs and whether there is existing course content related to Blackness and/or topics of anti-racism within Geography Programs. The poster dissects how race, racism, and Blackness have been avoided and separated from the Geography discipline and how this is seen in NY and 107 HBCUs.
