COMMUNITY CONVERSATION: WHITEWASHING BLACK HISTORY
- Tuesday, April 27
- 2 – 3:30 pm
- TED Talk, discussion
Should white people care about the whitewashing of black history? Most people will likely answer yes to this question, if only because it sounds politically correct to do so. What David Ikard, Professor of African American and Diaspora Studies at Vanderbilt University, hopes will become clear is that whites have as much to lose by whitewashing black history as their African American peers.
