Black Scholars on Black Lives Lecture Series
This inaugural series is presented by the John Spoor Broome Library, at Cal State Channel Islands, in Partnership with the Center for Multicultural Engagement and supported through Instructionally Related Activities funding.
This project is intended to be simple, but powerful: placing a focus on Black scholars whose research, scholarly, and creative activity centers Black lives, and encouraging the community to engage with research that is often underfunded and overlooked. These virtual events are open to all. We are thrilled at the caliber of our speakers (which include three of our own CSUCI faculty!), and hope you will be too.
Our first lecture, Mr. Derrick Jefferson on “When Worlds Collide,” is next week! Derrick Jefferson and kYmberly Keeton, our first two lecturers, are LIS/Archives professionals that may especially interest you.
