Abstract

Integrating scholarship on race as a global structure and Latin American racial formations, I ofer an account of racialization in Colombia. This article analyzes the racial dynamics of resist ance to extractivism in Colombia's Universidad Campesina, uniting Indigenous and campesino groups like the Comunidad de Paz de San José de Apartadó. While the dominant race lexicon separates 'campesinos' from 'Indigenous' and 'Black' groups, I argue that the identifer campesino mestizo hides how San José's farmers were 'de-indigenized' yet remain racialized. If racialization works to dominate but also divide the subaltern, then Universidad Campesina participants' cross-ethnic solidarity network both unveils and counters racism.
