Your Mirada. Gracias. Siempre: Afro-Asia, Intimacies, and Women-of-Color Feminisms

  • Catherine R. Peters

Abstract

This essay considers the dialogue that scholar Lorgia García-Peña and performance artist Josefina Báez have co-created to explore connections between Asia and Africa in the Americas. Situating their praxis in women-of-color feminisms, I describe their endeavors to build coalition across historical and material difference. Finally, I contextualize how chosen ties between Asian and African diasporic subjects actively refuse imperial and capitalist histories that have sought to divide and separate them.
