Annual African Studies Day Distinguished Speaker

Africana Studies Day 04-28-15-page-001The Department of Africana Studies would like to invite you to attend our annual Africana Studies Day Forum which will be an Ethnic Studies Forum with a keynote lecture by Dr. Kenneth Monteiro, Dean, College of Ethnic Studies, San Francisco State University, titled “The Chancellor’s Task Force for the Advancement of Ethnic Studies: Reflections on its Rationale and Work” on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 2:003:15pm, LH-150.

The forum will discuss the initiative by our department beginning two years ago to sustain and advance Africana Studies and ethnic studies as a whole at CSULB and in the CSU system; the strong support gained from a variety of sources; the resultant Chancellor’s statewide moratorium on any negative changes to ethnic studies; and the formation of a Task Force to deal with critical issues concerning ways and means of advancement composed of faculty, academic leaders, campus presidents, representatives from the statewide Ethnic Studies Council and students.

We hope that you will attend and would appreciate your making an announcement about this forum to your students. Please find attached an announcement of this event.

In Solidarity for Excellence,
