Title: Fatherhood: Implications for Young Men of Color on HBCU Campuses

Come join this conversation, as we examine the impact fathers and/or father figures have on young men of color on HBCU campuses.

Title: Black Folk Done Lost Their Stuff”: The Causes and Consequences of Cultural Loss

Lecturer: Dr. William Turner-C.R.E.ED. Scholar in Residence

Description:  A discussion of the complexity of black thought and identity in US history where “blackness” cannot be easily outlined into discrete fields of ethical, emotional, party-political, and spiritual/sacred interests and perspectives.  Most African Americans agree on certain political issues growing out of common historical experiences and collective memory.  However, with the influence of globalized social media, there are significant losses: the loss of accepted wisdom, the loss of beliefs and principles, and the loss of the past, and the loss of what is yet to come – for as long as race matters
