Speakers: Robert A. Hill, Ph.D. and Michaeline A. Crichlow, Ph.D.
This conversation between Professors Robert A. Hill. and Michaeline A. Crichlow, Department of African and African American Studies will discuss Hill’s career as a chronicler and historian of the African Diaspora through the writing of his now 13-volume Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers project. Hill‘s research has taken him through the expanse of the African Diaspora as he combed through personal, public, and private archives to document the life and pan-African influence of Marcus Garvey, one of the leading intellectual voices of the early 20th century. Hill‘s papers are now housed in the John Hope Franklin Research Center at the David M Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Professor Hill is at Duke University for a one week fellowship to celebrate the archive and share with the Duke community.
This event is presented by the John Hope Franklin Center, and Duke University’s Center for International and Global Studies. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd and Erwin Rd parking decks. The series provides 1 hour parking vouchers to guests.
