Patience Essah Lecture Series

Each academic year, the African American and Africana Studies Program at Auburn University coordinates a series of academic and cultural lectures in honor of Dr. Patience Essah, Professor Emerita of history and director of Africana Studies. Lectures expose students to the rigor and breadth of African American and Africana Studies by giving them the opportunity to learn from and engage with leading scholars within the field. The cultural lectures speak to contemporary and historical moments or experiences in ways which allow students to connect with complex or difficult subjects through more a personal interaction.
