As part of the University Libraries’ programming in honor of Black History Month, Dr. Crystal Fleming discussed her recent book, Resurrecting Slavery: Racial Legacies and White Supremacy in France. Her talk focused on the ways in which French history and culture inform contemporary attitudes toward race and racism. The event, which provoked a rich and multidisciplinary discussion, was attended by both students and faculty members.
The University Libraries look forward to the next event in our series honoring Black History Month, a lecture by Dr. Jarvis Watson entitled, “‘Black Minds Matter’: Engaging, Educating, and Empowering our Black Students.” This event will take place on 2/21 at 3pm in the Special Collections Seminar Room on the second floor of Melville Library.
