African American Lecture Series
African American Lecture Series – A Brief History
Over the course of the past six years, The African American Lecture Series has featured such distinguished African American writers, artists and public intellectuals as James McBride, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Tavis Smiley, Angela Davis, Dr. Cornel West, Harry Belafonte, LeVar Burton, Anita Hill, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and Angela Rye. The series' mission is to not only promote African American history, but also to educate and engage the Texas Tech University community and broader public about the contributions regarding the indelible impact African Americans have made on American society and indeed the world.
