Director of Equity and Student Achievement Percy Brown Jr. will be leading a four-week Black Excellence Lecture Series next month.
The course is designed to help participants develop an understanding of the role and contributions Black people have provided to the growth and development of human civilization and the United States. The course will deconstruct the science of race, interrogate Eurocentric framing of Black people and offer counter narrative perspectives from great Black historians that reframes what most have come to know about Black people.
Brown will share his expertise in a lecture-discussion format. The four-week course will cover the following topics:
- March 4: Black Africa and Deconstructing Race Pre 1619
- March 11: Black Resistance from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War
- March 18: Black Resilience in the Era of Jim Crow
- March 25: Afro-Futurism and Critical Consciousness
The series will be held via Zoom. Each session begins at 6 p.m. You can register at this link.
The series is being sponsored by DreamBank.
