January 17, 2014

We're inviting Dr. Maurice Wallace to campus for March 31, 2014...If all goes according to plan, he'll be giving a lecture about the image of the "thug" and how the thug-image has impacted mental health for African American men, and the social cost for all of us. 

The Body Project presents "Hood Life; or, Tracking Trayvon: Sentiment, Surveillance and Disappearing Black Boyhood," a lecture by Dr. Maurice Wallace of Duke University, funded by the University Intellectual and Cultural Activities Committee (ICAC) in conjunction with Bradley University’s year-long celebration of Civil Rights—Past and Present.  Dr. Wallace is a preeminent scholar of African American Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, American Literature, and Visual Culture.  His lecture, followed by Q & A, will begin at 6:30 pm on Monday, March 31st in the Marty Theater, located in the basement of Bradley University’s Michel Student Center.  This event is free and open to the public.
