Newsletter: Week of April 3, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

In times of discord, instability, uncertainty, and angst, to what might we turn for solace and clarity? Radical, liberating love, author and Associate Professor of Africana Studies Rhon Manigault-Bryant contends. In her talk at the Hub this Sunday, April 9, Rhon will unearth a terrifyingly beautiful lineage of black resilience to reveal how the pursuit of love is synonymous with the revolutionary act of freedom. 

LeRhonda Manigault-Bryant is Associate Professor of Africana Studies and author of Talking to the Dead: Religion, Music, and Lived Memory Among Gullah/Geechee Women (Duke University Press, 2014). She currently serves as Associate Dean of the Faculty at Williams College. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street. Read more here.

*Note: Arian Foster 4/23 Event Has Been Canceled
