Inaugural Clyde Kennard Lecture Series
An upcoming lecture series named after Clyde Kennard is a collaborative initiative sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters at The University of Southern Mississippi, Mississippi Humanities Council (MHC), Historic Eureka School and Freedom50 Research Group, an interdisciplinary cohort of Southern Miss professors. The lectures will examine the (in)visible signs of cultural change that have occurred at the university, and the challenges it faces as a public institution marked by a sordid history of race relations as it also extends to the entire state.
The final lecture of the series on April 6, 2017 will feature the History Department’s own Dr. Rebecca Tuuri, Assistant Professor of History, who will discuss the evolution of Black student activism on campus. Each lecture will begin at 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For more information on the lecture series, CLICK HERE.
