Elizabeth Barahona


Elizabeth specializes in Latinx, African American, and United States history at Northwestern University. Her dissertation will chronicle how Black and Latinx communities created grassroots organizations and coalitions to fight white supremacy in the Deep South, specifically Durham, North Carolina. She studies how Black and Latinx community members actively worked past their xenophobia and anti-Black prejudices to create campaigns to address poor housing, labor exploitation, and over-policing in their neighborhoods.

You can find Elizabeth’s latest publication about Latinx students and the history of Fred Hampton in Chicago here.
