Dr. Ogechi E Anyanwu 

Thu, Sep 16, 8p

Dr. Ogechi Anyanwu is professor of history and director of African and African American studies at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky. He just released “The Making of Mbano: British Colonialism, Resistance, and Diplomatic Engagements in Southeastern Nigeria, 1906–1960.”

Mbano is a community located in the South-Eastern state of Imo State, Nigeria. The community spans two local government areas with about 400,000 people or the population size of Oklahoma City.

In his book, Anyanwu repudiates the misrepresentation of the continent by providing authentic, ironclad proof that Africans—in this case, the Igbos of Mbano in Southeastern Nigeria—were resilient and unyielding to colonial mandates.

The Underground Railroad in the Midwest. When some think of the Underground Railroad, many think of conductor Harriet Tubman and the eastern seaboard routes she followed. However, the Underground Railroad had players and routes in what is now the Midwest, including Illinois and Indiana. CR Gibbs will discuss the Midwestern system complimenting the “Road to Freedom: The Underground Railroad in the DMV” lecture that he often gives in Metro DC.

Circa 1850, an international school of racial typology favoring the superiority of Caucasian’s over all people of color had begun to develop and publicly express itself. This international school propagated the pseudo-science of biological and intellectual inferiority of African descended people has been referred to as “scientific racism.” In 1850, Haitian Joseph Anténor Firmin challenged and meticulously dismantled the dangerous pillars of the race myth and race propaganda. Gershom Williams, Sr explains this environment, the players, and Firmin's response.

Gershom Williams, Sr is a retired Adjunct Professor of African-American History and African-American Studies at Mesa Community College, Mesa, Arizona. Routledge Press released his essay "Anténor Firmin, Pan-Africanism, and the Struggle for Race Vindication"

Mammy's Revenge?: with Morgan State University Archivist Dr. Ida Jones

Thu, Aug 05, 8p

Our talk today, Mammy’s Revenge, is partially based in film historian and author Donald Boogle's book “Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies, and Bucks: An Interpretive History of Blacks in American Films,” which he released in 1973. In the book, Bogle describes a mammy figure as "representative of the all-Black woman, over-weight, middle-aged, and so dark, so thoroughly black, that it is preposterous even to suggest that she be a sex object. Instead, she was desexed." Almost 50 years later, we see women who could fit this description to some degree not only gain power, but use it, including:
