The Chocolate Spectrum as Ridiculer

  • Reagan Patrick Mitchell Colgate University


During the 2018 Bergamo Conference Provoking Dialogues session, I was able to review and respond publically to Dr. Licho López'z book The Making of Indigeneity, Curriculum History, and the Limits of Diversity. My discussion centers on considering how López's book is a call to riducule rigid notions of time via the chocolate spectrum. The chocolate spectrum is a broader contextualization of medias rooted in international Black diasporic communal entities. Additionally, the notion of the ridiculer is inspired by López's call to decolonize education and the institution.
