Please join us Thursday, October 6th at 7:00pm for a talk by Dr. Imani Perry examining racial inequality in the United States. This is the second in the OWHL’s three-part speaker series, “Our Divided House: History, Race, and Public Policy in America.”
All events will take place in the Freeman Room at the OWHL. Registration is required. To register, please click here.
Dr. Perry is the Hughes-Rogers professor of African American studies at Princeton University, where she is also affiliated with the Programs in Law and Public Affairs and Gender and Sexuality Studies. She is the author of: More Beautiful and More Terrible: The Embrace and Transcendence of Racial Inequality in the United States (NYU, 2011) and Prophets of the Hood: Politics and Poetics in Hip Hop (Duke, 2004) as well as numerous articles in the fields of law, cultural studies and African American studies. Dr. Perry has a forthcoming book on the history of the Black National anthem from Oxford University Press and another on gender, neo-liberalism and the digital age from Duke University Press.
In response to the recent police-killings of unarmed African Americans and heightened racial tensions across the country, the OWHL is hosting a three part speaker series entitled “Our Divided House,” examining the intersection of history, race, and public policy. It is our hope that the three incredible speakers will help our community understand this persistent national issue and spur discussion and reflection across campus.
This series is presented in collaboration with CAMD and brought to you by the John M. Kemper Memorial Lectureship.
