Be a part the conversation.
A panel of media experts and scholars of politics, race and ethnicity will engage an audience at UMBC in “Race and the Civil Rights Movement in Music and Media: a Panel Discussion” tomorrow afternoon, February 13 at 4 pm in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery.
This UMBC Humanities Forum focuses on the reciprocal relationship between mid-20th Century images and music, and the American Civil Rights Movement, and discusses the use of these forms of media as a catalyst for change. Additionally, it joins the ongoing dialogue at the University surrounding the influence of media on the Civil Rights Movement.
The panelists include Marc Steiner, of 88.9’s Marc Steiner Show, Derek Musgrove and Michelle Scott, both Associate Professors of History at UMBC, and features panel respondent, Daphne Harrison, Emerita Professor of Africana Studies and a founder of the UMBC Humanities Center. “Race and the Civil Rights Movement in Music and Media” will be moderated by Kimberly Moffitt, Assistant professor of American Studies at UMBC, whose research focuses on hair and body politics and media representations of people of African descent.
This event is free and open to the public. Learn more about the panelists, and find directions at UMBC’s Arts and Culture Calendar.
