Friday, January 17th 2014
Student Union South Ballroom
The UA MLK Keynote address will feature prominent U.S. historian, Dr. Mathew C. Whitaker, and will be an engaging and provocative opportunity to talk about western racial etiquette, resistance, and the interracial alliances that made a difference for Arizonans involved in the struggle for civil rights.
Dr. Matthew C. Whitaker is currently the ASU Foundation Professor of History and the founding director of the Center for Race and Democracy at ASU. An expert on U.S. history, race relations, and social movements, Dr. Whitaker has authored or edited three books, with Peace Be Still: Modern Black America from World War II to Barak Obama being his forthcoming publication. This event is made possible through support from the UA Cultural Centers, the Africana Studies Department, and the Dean of Students Office.
