Three Dynamic Scholars To Headline 36th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Public Affairs Lecture
The Department of African American Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences is presenting its 36th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Public Affairs Lecture on Monday, April 15, from 5:30 to 7: 15 p.m. in Watson Theater in the Menschel Media Center, 382 Waverly Ave.
The lecture features three dynamic scholars—Carol Henderson, Jared A. Ball and Dana A. Williams—who will deliver critical thought and inquiry about African American studies as a core discipline and field.
Each will address how Black Studies as a core discipline and field has shaped the trajectory for the inclusion of multicultural programs across campuses around the world and the importance of Black Studies in the current political and social climate. A Q&A will follow. Light refreshments will be served.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first institutionalized Ethnic Studies and Black Studies programs on university and college campuses.
