Bénédicte Boisseron (Afro-American and African studies) and Aliyah Khan (English, Afro-American and African studies) discuss Boisseron's new book "Afro-Dog," which investigates the relationship between race and the animal in the history and culture of the Americas and the black Atlantic, exposing a hegemonic system that compulsively links and opposes blackness and animality to measure the value of life.
