The W. E. B. Du Bois Lectures were established in 1981 with funding from the Ford Foundation. Co-sponsored by Harvard University Press, these lectures recognize persons of outstanding achievement who have contributed to our better understanding of African American life, history, and culture.
AAPF Executive Director, Kimberle Crenshaw, gave the Du Bois lectures this upcoming February.
Her series, entitled “Racing to Postracialism” will took place on three consecutive days and include the following three lectures:
- Double Trouble: How Law Produces and Frames Racial Inequality
- Intersectional Interventions: Unmasking and Dismantling Racial Power.
- Global Iterations of the Du Boisian Knot: The Problem of the 21st Century is the Problem of the Color-Blind
