Tokeya Graham (English/Philoosophy) to Present at Filling Station: A Faculty Research Presentation Series
On Friday, September 13, 12-12:50 p.m., in 8-200, Associate Professor Tokeya Graham (English/Philosophy) will deliver the first Filling Station presentation of the Fall 2019 term. For this event, Graham will deliver a talk called "James Baldwin's America: Race and Modern Society." According to Graham: "James Baldwin's writings offer an unflinching look into America's complicated history dealing (and not dealing) with race. This presentation will highlight Baldwin's words as commentary on what ailed America then and what still ails it now, almost 50 years later. This conversation is intended to spark thoughtful dialogue about racial progress and what it will take to cultivate an inclusive society." The presentation will be followed by a question-answer session. All members of the college community are welcome.
