The Office of Equity and Campus Diversity, History and Social Studies Education Department, and the African and African-American Interdisciplinary Studies Unit are pleased to announce that Dr. Charlotte Walker-Said, of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice - CUNY, will deliver a talk, "Women, Traditional Marriage, and Modern Families in Africa: Christian and Nationalist Propaganda in the Twentieth Century,” as part of the celebrations of Black History Month and Women’s History Month.
Dr. Walker-Said’s talk will explore the intersection of Christianity and nationalist politics in Africa and how the resultant religious debates framed conceptions of women’s role in society, family, and nation in the late colonial and early post-independence periods. Together we will examine Christian symbols, images, and slogans of the 1950s and 1960s and analyze their impact on African nations
This event, which is free and open to the public, will take place Thursday, March 6, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Bacon Hall 117.
