The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity
  • Date: Thursday, February 25, 2021
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: Online

The Black family has been a topic of study across disciplines—history, literature, the visual arts, film, sociology, anthropology, and social policy. It has been described as a rich tapestry for exploring African Americans past and present and its complexity as the foundation of African American life and history. A panel will discuss these ideas and perspectives including family traditions, brothers and sisters, power-couples, and community. Moderated by Ida E. Jones, University Archivist at Morgan State University, panelists include Alison Parker, author of Unceasing Militant, the Life of Mary Church Terrell; Darius Young, author of Robert R. Church Jr. and the African American Political Struggle; John Whittington Franklin and Karen Roberts Franklin, Franklin Global LLC, Managing Members; and Barbara Spencer Dunn, ASALH Vice President for Membership & Contributor and Member of the Black History 365 (BH365) Professional Development Team.

Presented in partnership with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.
