Exhibit Talk and Tour: "If We Must Die": African Americans and the War for Democracy
Join us for a lunchtime talk with Professor Adriane Lentz-Smith and take a tour of our new exhibit marking the centennial of the end of World War I, Views of the Great War: Highlights from the Duke University Libraries.
Adriane Lentz-Smith is Associate Professor of History, African & African-American Studies, and Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies at Duke. Her book, Freedom Struggles: African Americans and World War I (Harvard, 2009), won the Honor Book Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. Her current book project, “The Slow Death of Sagon Penn,” examines state violence and the remaking of white supremacy in Reagan-Era southern California. A Ford Foundation fellow, Professor Lentz-Smith holds a B.A. in History from Harvard-Radcliffe and a Ph.D. in History from Yale University.
A light lunch will be provided. Please register to help us estimate attendance.
