Fall Faculty Book Club

Date: 09/10/2014
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: TBD

Consider joining UMW’s Fall 2014 Faculty Book Club, third co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

We will be reading Stokley: A Life by Peniel E. Joseph.  According to Amazon, “Stokely Carmichael, the charismatic and controversial black activist, stepped onto the pages of history when he called for “Black Power” during a speech one Mississippi night in 1966. A firebrand who straddled both the American civil rights and Black Power movements, Carmichael would stand for the rest of his life at the center of the storm he had unleasehed that night. In Stokely, preminent civil rights scholar Peniel E. Joseph presents a groundbreaking biography of Carmichael, using his life as a prism through which to view the transformative African American freedom struggles of the twentieth century. “

You can also read a recent Washington Post article here.

By joining the Fall Book Club you will receive a copy of the book and three lunch opportunities (12-1) on Wednesday, September 10th, Tuesday, September 23rd, and October 15th to come together and discuss the book.
