Faculty, staff, students, and friends are cordially invited to join us on Monday, April 17 from 5-6 p.m. at Villanova University’s Falvey Library for the annual Senghor-Damas-Césaire Lecture for Africana Studies. The event will take place in Speakers’ Corner, located on the Library’s first floor.
The Senghor-Damas-Césaire Lecture focuses on African issues and issues connected to the global Black diaspora. The featured speaker will be Kris Manjapra, PhD, Professor, Department of History, Tufts University. Dr. Manjapra works at the intersection of transnational history and the critical study of race and colonialism. He is the author of five books, including his comparative study of global emancipation processes and the implications for reparations movement today: Black Ghost of Empire: The Long Death of Slavery and the Failure of Emancipation.
This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by the Africana Studies Program, Department of Global Interdisciplinary Studies, and Falvey Library, is free and open to the public. Registration is not required to attend this event.
