Tuesday, October 8, 7 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

What does it mean to be "Black"? If Blackness has no biological basis what do we mean when we claim it for ourselves or for others? In this lecture, Dr. Michelle M. Wright discusses the odd yet obvious role time and space play in our assumptions about and engagements with racial identities, especially Blackness. Learn how Sir Isaac Newton and an early Black African Christian theologian still guide and structure so much of our understanding of race in the 21st century --and how discoveries in quantum physics point to a far more complex notion of time, space and identity...one with which we are not actually unfamiliar! Part of the annual public lecture series sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.

Visit our Off the Shelf blog for an in-depth interview with Dr. Wright.
