Share this event:


As part of the annual Africa Day Celebration, the Seattle University Global African Studies Program is hosting a public lecture by noted scholar Professor Stephen Ward, Ph.D.  Professor Ward is an historian who teaches in the RC Social Theory & Practice Program and the Department of Afro-American and African Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His teaching and writing focus on two areas of recent American history. One is African American political thought and social movements, particularly the Black Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The other area is the evolution of cities since World War II, with an emphasis on grassroots activism and community-based approaches to urban redevelopment. Much of his work focuses on the city of Detroit. He is completing a dual-biography of two long-time Detroit activists, James and Grace Lee Boggs, and he is a board member of the James and Grace Lee Boggs Center to Nurture Community Leadership, a community-based organization in Detroit.  Professor Ward's lecture is titled: "Black Power and the African Revolution: James and Grace Lee Boggs, Kwame Nkrumah, and Black Radical Networks"
