The third Somali Studies in Canada Colloquium at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, took place on October 16, 2021. Each event brought Somali-Scholars and others who study Somali Diaspora to come together to discuss Blackness and its intersections with various sites and systems of power (i.e. educational, policing, courts, prisons, borders and diasporic life). This discussion is especially relevant for young and emerging Somali diaspora scholars, organizers, and activists aware of these challenges and who are thinking about what it means to belong to Canada as Black people, as Muslims, as refugees or immigrants, and as second-generation Canadians. This year the conversation extended to the United States and continental Europe.
