Black History Month Speaker Series – Dr. Matthew Pettway – Cuban Literature in the Age of Black Insurrection

February 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dr. Pettway will present his recent book, Cuban Literature in the Age of Black Insurrection: Manzano, Plácido, and Afro-Latino Religion, which argues that Black Cuban colonial authors subverted the symbols of Catholicism to create portrayals of African-insipred spirituality.

Black History Month Speaker Series – Dr. Roberto Saba – American Mirror: The United States and Brazil in the Age of Emancipation

February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
