⭐️ Presented by the UC Davis African American and African Studies Department
We are delighted to announce our Department of African American and African Studies "First Fridays" Speaker Series and Book Celebration events. This year-long series is organized around the theme "New Directions in Black Studies" and features scholars writing on topics such as: black internationalism contributions to environmental justice; girlhood, labor, and migration in West Africa; gendered and racial discrimination in CA high-tech industries; health justice; and global histories of prison resistance, among many others. We will be kicking off the year with two events in October.
