African American Roots and Resilience: Black History for American Jews

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Join Dr. Lillie J. Edwards for a four-part lecture series exploring the broad landscape of African American history from its African origins to the 21st century. The class will highlight how African Americans shaped and defined America while resisting white supremacy and systemic dehumanization based on race, gender, and class.

Dr. Edwards is Professor Emerita of History and African American Studies at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. She was the founding Director of Pan-African Studies and received awards for excellent and distinguished teaching. A leading consultant on national education programs, Edwards received her doctorate in U.S Southern history, African history and African literature from the University of Chicago, where she studied under the late preeminent historian Dr. John Hope Franklin.

This series is open to anyone interested in learning more about African-American history and is in honor of Black History Month which takes place in February.
