Homecoming at DPAS 2019
Advocacy, Resilience, and Black Liberation are the key themes of a recent Oral History project created through a collaboration of six departments in the College of the Arts and Sciences. Titiled "Advocay, Resilience, and Black Liberation: An Oral History", this collaboration aims to collect the accounts of Black student experiences on campus, through conducting face to face interviews. During the summer 2019 several interns worked in the Pan-African Studies library conducting interviews and building contacts of Black Alumni who attended KSU between 1965 and 1970. The Department of Pan-African Studies will hold its annual open house and reception during Homecoming weekend in honor of the recently established Digital Humanities Lab. The reception will be Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 12 pm - 3 pm in the Uumbaji Gallery foyer out side room 134 Oscar Ritchie Hall. During the open house hourly guided tours of the Center for Pan-African Culture will be provided and light refreshments will be served. Those who wish to participate in the Digital Humanities Project interviews are asked to complete the Black Alumni Update form.
