Texas Tech Announces 2018 African-American History Month Guest Lecturers
The Texas Tech University Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion will be presenting numerous speakers for their annual African-American History month guest lecture series.
This year's featured speakers are attorney, professor and advocate Anita Hill, and Minister Micheal Eric Dyson.
From Texas Tech University:
Hill is known for her groundbreaking advocacy work that has helped raise nationwide awareness of sexual harassment. Her work led to the passage of legislation that allows sexual harassment victims to seek damage awards in addition to back pay and reinstatement.
Dyson currently serves as a professor of sociology at Georgetown University, where he received widespread attention in 2011 for his course “Sociology of Hip-Hop: Jay-Z.” He has taught at several other well-known institutions, including Brown University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Columbia University, and has been named one of the 150 most powerful African-Americans by Ebony Magazine, called a “superstar professor” by The Washington Post and referred to as “one of the most graceful and lucid intellectuals writing on race and politics today” by Vanity Fair.
The lectures will take place on Monday, February 26th at 7 p.m. in the SUB's Escondido room.
Events are open to the public and free, but you must get tickets from Doak Hall, Room 101.
