The Center for Multicultural Education will discuss "Multicultural American Literature: Comparative Black, Native, Latino/a, and Asian American Fictions" by A. Robert Lee.
The Center for Multicultural Education will host journalist Touré. In the age of Obama, racial attitudes have become more complicated and nuanced than ever before. Inspired by a president who is unlike any Black man ever seen on our national stage, we are searching for new ways of understanding Blackness. In Touré’s provocative new book, he tackles what it means to be Black in America today. He examines the concept of “Post-Blackness,” a term that defines artists who are proud to be Black but don’t want to be limited by identity politics and boxed in by race. Touré argues that Blackness is infinite, that any identity imaginable is Black and that all expressions of Blackness are legitimate. A book club session on Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness: What It Means to Be Black Now will be held prior to the lecture from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at the CME.
