The Spring African American Studies Faculty Brown Bag Seminar

The department of African American Studies Faculty Brown Bag Lunch Seminar aims to provide a forum for the presentation of new work by faculty. The conversations cut across disciplinary boundaries, reflect the expansive bibliography of African American Studies, and occasion opportunities for new and innovative thinking.


On March 9th, 2016 professor Anna Arabindan Kesson presents, “Skin, Color, Surface: Barkley L. Hendricks and the Black Nude,” informed by her research on the contemporary African American painter, Barkley L. Hendricks. Hendricks is known for making pioneering contributions in black portraiture and conceptualism. Hendricks received B.A. and M.A. degrees from Yale University and is Professor Emeritus of Studio Art from Connecticut College.

Professor Eddie S. Glaude Jr. presented “Democracy in Black,” on December 5th, 2015 as the fall 2015 Brown Bag Lunch Seminar.
