Reflecting the current social injustice and the Black Lives Matter movement
in the U.S., this year’s Hahn Moo-Sook colloquium will examine the myriad
ways that race impacts Korean/Korean-American and African-American and the
African diasporic communities related to the important conversation on
racism and social injustice. In doing so, we begin examining from the 1992
LA riots and how the two communities have evolved since then. The speakers
will examine Black-Korean tensions, what it means to be Korean-American in
relation to multicultural politics and race, how we can situate
Asian/Korean American experiences within the context of black-white
paradigm, how the music genre of R&B and hip hop has brought the two
communities closer through K-pop, and how the collaboration of cultural
production influence and interrogate their respective cultures.

The Hahn Moo-Sook (HMS) Colloquium in the Korean Humanities series at the
George Washington University provides a forum for academic discussion of
Korean arts, history, language, literature thought and religious systems in
the context of East Asia and the world. The colloquium series is made
possible by an endowment established by the estate of Hahn Moo-Sook
(1918-1993), one of Korea’s most honored writers, to uphold her spirit of
openness, curiosity, and commitment to education.
