M000783073The Wright Museum presents a lecture and book signing with Pero Gaglo Dagbovie, Professor of History and Graduate Director of the Department of History at Michigan State University.  Mr. Dagbovie’s book, "Black History: Old School Black Historians and the Hip Hop Generation" provides straightforward entries into a range of important facets of Black history as a philosophy and concept, an academic field of study, a popular cultural symbol, and as an actual and potential vehicle for social change and black self-empowerment and collective liberation.  Dagbovie revisits and reconsiders the concept of Black history, the ideologies and contributions of many "Old School" black historians, and the status of the hip-hop generation.  Presented in partnership with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) and the Wayne State University Department of Africana Studies.

A donation of $10 is requested but not mandatory for admission.
