AAAS@50: Black Studies in the Age of Black Lives Matter

The African and African American Studies Program will celebrate its 50th anniversary by hosting a roundtable with AAAS alumni and current students.

Thursday, October 15, 2020
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Zoom Webinar
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Conferences
Registration required.

AAAS@50 will commemorate the rich history and current urgency of Black Studies at Dartmouth. Our program, like many across the nation, owes its existence to the relentless marches and protests of the Civil Rights Movement, including the work of John Lewis and his fellow student-activists. The roundtable will therefore give tribute to the legacy of Congressman John Lewis. Panelists include Black Dartmouth alums who were campus activist/leaders in the 1960s and who directly participated in arguments, discussions, and plans to put Black Studies in place at the College; former Dartmouth Professor Judith Byfield ‘80; Professor Frank B. Wilderson ’78; and AAAS seniors/Digital Humanities and Social Engagement Fellows Marina Cepeda, Daniella Omeruo, and Carlos Polanco.

Sponsored by African and African American Studies, Black Alumni of Dartmouth Association, The Dickey Center, The Ethics Institute, The Leslie Center, Digital Humanities and Social Engagement.
