This year is the 100th anniversary of the 1923 Supreme Court case United States v. Thind, where Sikh-American Bhagat Singh Thind attempted citizenship. This panel will examine the intersections between Thind and race, caste, colonialism, its implications for religion and activism, and what we can learn from this history today.
