Monday, January 27, at 6 pm, Richard Bell, Associate Professor at the University of Maryland, will deliver a lecture on his work about free blacks kidnapped into slavery, entitled "On the Road to the Dismal Gulf: Free Blacks' Journey into Slavery." The lecture will be held in Lloyd Hall room 38. Particularly if you're teaching a relevant upper-level course, please bribe your students accordingly. A flyer for the event is attached.
Monday, February 17, Jennifer Jensen Wallach, Associate Professor at the University of North Texas and a foodways scholar, will be presenting, "'Clean, fresh beef': Black Progressive Food Reformers and the Case Study of the Tuskegee Institute." We will host this event in the Summersell Room in the evening, and as with the event with Natalie Ring from this past spring, it will be a lecture accompanied by dinner and conversation, so I will be sending around a request for RSVPs in a few weeks to be sure I'll have enough food for everyone.
