Whitney Battle-Baptiste delivers a dynamic lecture outlining "how the digital age uniquely accommodates the legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois, and serves as a perfect bridge to bring his work to a new generation."
Battle-Baptiste sees both classroom and campus as spaces to engage contemporary issues with a sensibility of the past. A scholar and activist, she focuses her research on the intersection of race, gender, class, and sexuality. Her ability to translate material culture and artifacts into complex interpretations of African American domestic life has made her a pioneer in her field.
