Villanova faculty, staff, students, and friends are cordially invited to join us on Wednesday, April 26, from 5-6 p.m. in Falvey Library’s Speakers’ Corner for the annual Ida B. Wells Lecture featuring Michael G. Hanchard, PhD, Gustave C. Kuemmerle Professor in the Africana Studies Department at the University of Pennsylvania, where he directs the Marginalized Populations Project.
At this lecture Dr. Hanchard will address some of the social and political challenges facing African-Americans, in comparative perspective with the challenges facing Africans and Afro-descendant populations in the UK and France. In addition, he will draw on themes and research from his recent book, The Spectre of Race: How Discrimination Haunts Western Democracy (Princeton University Press).
This ACS-approved event is co-sponsored by the Africana Studies Program, Department of Global Interdisciplinary Studies, Department of Political Science, Department of Sociology, French and Francophone Studies, and Falvey Library. Light refreshments will be served.
