Save the Date! Hasan K. Jeffries Book Signing, July 8, 2009 at OSU (Sponsored by Kirwan Institute)

Jeffries Flyer Final

Mark your calendars for this event on July 8, 2009 (6:30pm, King Arts Complex on 867 Mt. Vernon Ave) if you’re going to be in the Columbus area. Dr. Jeffries talk should be a great event for anyone interested in the latest scholarship on the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements. Dr. Jeffries’s book is the latest in challenging the ways in which historians, and everyday people, view that particular moment in American history. Go here (and here) for more info on Bloody Lowndes (the book).

From the flyer:

Bloody Lowndes tells the remarkable story of the local people and SNCC organizers who ushered in the Black Power era by transforming rural Lowndes County, Alabama from a citadel of violent white supremacy into the center of southern black militancy. They did so by creating the Lowndes County Freedom Organization (LCFO), an all-black, independent, political party that was also the original Black Panther Party. Author Hasan Kwame Jeffries teaches African American history at The Ohio State University, where he holds a joint appointment in the History Department and at the Kirwan Institute. This event – sponsored by the Kirwan Institute and hosted by the King Arts Complex – is free and open to the public.
