Description

This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a future date.

Minkah Makalani, associate professor of history and director of the Center for Africana Studies at Johns Hopkins University, will give a talk titled "Worlds of Hip-Hop" as part of the Helena Hicks Emancipation School.

About the series:

Honoring Baltimore's living legend Helena Hicks, who as a Morgan State University student led the 1955 sit-in movement at Read's Drugstore, the Fall 2021 Helena Hicks Emancipation School lecture series features 40-minute presentations from the Johns Hopkins faculty. These lectures are digests of standing courses, manicured for the event. The mini-courses present the main hypothesis or research question, a pithy literature review explaining key readings from the syllabus, definitions of specialist terms, and a window into the unique archives or data. At the conclusion of the lectures, the experts will field questions from the audience. Registered participants of all three mini-courses will receive a certificate of completion from the Johns Hopkins University Billie Holiday Center for Liberation Arts: Helena Hicks Emancipation School.

This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a future date. The next event as part of the Helena Hicks Emancipation School is:

  • Dec. 16: Vesla Weaver, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of political science and sociology, "Race and Inequality in the U.S."
