ASU Multicultural Center Hosting Black History Presentation
February 18, 2011
Dr. Randolph Peters from the ASU Modern Languages Department will headline the event that will run from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday in Room 110/111 of the University Center. Peters’ presentation is open free to the public and refreshments will be provided.
The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared 2011 to be the International Year for People of African Descent. Peters’ presentation will provide timely focus on one of the foundational elements in the construction of Black identities globally, known as negritude, tracing its evolution from birth in 1930s Paris to current issues surrounding it in the U.S.
