Discussion: The Black Present and Presence

Saints Tekakwitha and Serra Hall 200, USD, San Diego

Discussions, Talks, Panels & Forums

In exploring the Black “present” and “presence,” this series illuminates where Black languages and lingos, communal traditions, bodily performances, spatial constructions and beyond can be found in our day to day lives and ways of American folks— from the extraordinary to the seemingly mundane. By way of panels that bring together scholars from a myriad of disciplines, the series will offer cultural accounts that move against the grain of the erasure, displacement and marginalization of the Black roots that lie beneath our very ways of being. Coordinated by Channon Miller, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of History.

This event will be held in the Humanities Center (Saints Hall 200) as well as virtually. Zoom Meeting ID 994 6801 1091.
