Event Information:
The Walter Rodney Speaker Series is being held on Thursdays at the AUC Woodruff Library throughout Spring 2013 Semester. Dr. Rodney (1942-1980) was a pan-Africanist historian and educator widely respected for his seminal text, “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa.” The Speaker Series is free and open to the public, and undergraduate and graduate students throughout Atlanta (including the AUC) can register for the course component and receive credit towards their degrees. Dr. Jesse Benjamin of Kennesaw State University is coordinating the lecture series, with a diversity of speakers discussing the life, work, and legacy of Dr. Rodney through interdisciplinary study and scholarship. The next scheduled talk is “The Significance of Walter Rodney for Continental and Diasporic Africans” to be delivered by Brown University’s Dr. Anani Dzidzienyo, Associate Professor of Africana Studies and Portuguese and Brazilian Studies, on Thursday, Jan. 24, in Room 202, 5-6pm. A full schedule of the Walter Rodney Speaker Series can be found at For information, please call 404-978-2052. The series is made possible through a partnership of the Walter Rodney Foundation, Inc., the AUC Woodruff Library, Kennesaw State University’s African and African Diaspora Studies Department, the Georgia Humanities Council, and Clark Atlanta University. The AUC Woodruff Library is the proud repository of the Walter Rodney Papers.
