"Conversations in African History" with Special Guest Lecturer, Dr. Perry"Khepera&
Sunday, March 26 2000, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The Reality of Race: The Necessity of Race Loyalty

          by              

Dr. Perry “Khepera” Kyles

 

(This event is FREE to the public)

The Reality of Race: The Necessity of Race Loyalty will address the growing myth that the United States has become a post-racial society. Dr. Kyles will introduce a range of sources to illustrate that racial disparities not only exist in various areas, but in some cases have widened over recent years. Additionally, he will make the case that race is far more than a social construct – it is a genetic, historical, and cultural reality as proven by human history. Furthermore, Dr. Kyles will encourage Africans in America to not only acknowledge the genetic, historical, and cultural reality of race, but to respond with determined and well-conceived collective action. THIS EVENT IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC.

 

Dr. Perry “Khepera” Kyles is editor and publisher of African Diaspora Press. He is also Assistant Professor of History at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. He has published in the Journal of African American History, Africa and the Wider World, and the Encyclopedia of the African Diaspora.
