The UMass Amherst Libraries host the 23rd Annual Du Bois Lecture, "Viewing the Past Through the Eyes of the Present: A Dialogue Around the Work of Kara Walker."

The lecture features a panel comprised of Dr. Barbara Krauthamer, associate professor of history and associate dean of the Graduate School, UMass Amherst; Dr. Traci Parker, assistant professor, W. E. B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies, UMass Amherst; and Dr. Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor, assistant professor of history, Smith College.

The conversation, facilitated by Dr. Battle-Baptiste, will engage these scholars on race, gender, and slavery through their respective fields to highlight the truths embedded in the work of Kara Walker and other artists across the African Diaspora.
