Wednesday, October 23, 2019 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Johnson Center, Robeson Room, 240A


The workshop is designed to explore the unique ideas and themes Du Bois and Locke used when assessing the Black America of their era, and how many of these ideas, themes, and projections may have relevance for us today, both within and beyond the university.

The workshop will consist of several presentation and discussion sessions.

It will be held in the Robeson Room, JC 240A.

The George Mason community is invited to attend any or all of the sessions.

The first session will feature a presentation by Dr. Spencer Crew, George Mason University Robinson Professor and Acting Director of the National Museum for African American History and Culture.
