Johns Hopkins University
Free Lecture to Follow Book Signing
The author of a new book on the Black Power movement comes to the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University on Friday, May 6, for a book signing and free public lecture. Jeffery O.G. Ogbar, the author of Black Power: Radical Politics and African American Identity, will meet the public and sign books at 4:30 p.m. A lecture will follow at 5:15 p.m.
The event will take place in Olin Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. For information, call 410-516-4368.
In his new book, Ogbar, associate professor of history at the University of Connecticut, argues that Black Power had more lasting cultural consequences among African Americans and others than did the civil rights movement, engendering minority pride and influencing the political, cultural, and religious spheres of mainstream African American life for the next three decades.
Books will be available at a discount, courtesy of Johns Hopkins University Press. This event is co-sponsored by The Black Faculty and Staff Association, the Johns Hopkins University Press, the Sheridan Libraries, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. The event complements an exhibition, Legacy: Understanding Black Power Forty Years Later, at the university's Eisenhower Library through June 15.
