Clark College welcomes Rosa Clemente, co-founder of the National Hip-Hop Political
and a leading scholar on Afro-Latinx identity, as our keynote speaker at our annual Martin Luther
King, Jr. Celebration.
From her bio:
She is a frequent guest on television, radio and online media, as her opinion on critical
events is widely sought after. Rosa is a leading scholar on the issues of Afro-Latinx identity. Her groundbreaking article, Who is Black?, published in 2001, was the catalyst for many discussions regarding Blackness in the Latinx culture. She continues to discuss cultural identity, political
identity and racial identity in and out of the academy.
