A lecture on the forthcoming book by Professor Martha Biondi, Northwestern University

This event is free and open to the public. This event is not ticketed and all are invited to attend.

Dr. Martha Biondi is the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Associate Professor of African American Studies and History at Northwestern University. She received her B.A. Barnard College at Columbia University, and her Ph.D. from Columbia University. Her research interests include 20th Century African American History with a focus on social movements.

Her forthcoming book is entitled, “The Black Revolution on Campus.” In it Biondi examines the explosive emergence of Black Studies from 1967 to 1975 when direct action protest by African American students led to the creation of over 250 African American Studies programs, departments and institutes. Black Studies became a critical battleground as the Black Liberation movement moved from “civil rights” to “Black power.”

This is the inaugural lecture in a new series entitled “Reflections on African American Studies”. This annual lecture offers an opportunity for the Princeton community to reflect on the current and future direction of the field of African American Studies.  Its aim is to bring scholars to our campus who are thinking at the cutting edge of the discipline and who are taking up vexing questions about its past, current, and future trajectories.  The lecture exemplifies the role of the Center as a model for African American Studies for the 21st century.
