Becoming American Review
The University of Southern Maine could easily have made its “Becoming American” program a straightforward history lecture. The core of the program, which was presented on Wednesday evening at Hannaford Hall, was a compellingly detailed talk, “W. E. B. Du Bois and the Meaning of Race and Citizenship in the Jim Crow Era,” delivered by Leroy M. Rowe, an assistant professor of black history and politics at the university.
Becoming American: W.E.B. DuBois and the Meaning of Race and Citizenship in the Jim Crow Era
Using W. E. B. Du Bois’ seminal work, The Souls of Black Folk as a guide, this event will explore the African American quest for citizenship, equality, and justice through history, music and poetry. Please join us on October 12th, in Hannaford Hall on the USM Portland Campus. The reception is at 5:00 pm followed by the program from 6:00-8:00 pm. The event is free and all are welcome!
