Claremont Discourse presents:

Rita Roberts, Associate Professor of History and Black Studies, Scripps College
Wednesday, February 21st, 4:15 PM 2007

Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library
Snacks provided; discussion to follow.

Frederick Douglass said that "a little learning, indeed, may be a dangerous thing, but the want of learning is a calamity to any people." He may have said this because he knew, as a member of a people in shackles, that the activities of the mind are the required prerequisite to bringing about social change. Fighting oppression with eloquence - at once weapon and proof of active minds, African American activist - intellectuals living in the period before the Civil War confronted enormous challenges. They, along with white abolitionists, succeeded in placing the question of the morality of slavery on the national agenda but at the same time faced the solidification of biological racism in the national discourse that justified not only the enslavement of people of African descent but also racial discrimination in public and private life.

In this lecture, based on her forthcoming book, A New Vision, A New People: Evangelicalism and the Politics of Reform in Antebellum Northern Black Thought, Professor Roberts will explore the activists' understanding and solution to antebellum American racism through the writings and speeches of men and women determined to end racism and slavery simultaneously.

BYOG: Games Night at Honnold/Mudd Library

You're invited to escape your busy day and come play games in the library at night. We're hosting an open game night every Wednesday at 7 pm in the Founders Room at Honnold. Of course, feel free to bring your own games.

It's informal, easy, and designed for other people that might be curious about fun games. Coffee and other treats may be served if we're not too busy playing a board game or finishing a puzzle. Come on relax, play, and enjoy games in the library. Enjoy the company and food. *Really*

Gameon might also invite you to play at lunch in the near future. Feel free to let us know what would work best for you and your busy schedule. When do you need a break? Send email to gamelibraries2@sakai.claremont.edu if you want more info.

*Also, Facebook Joe Games at the Libraries, our virtual gaming presence!
