A Powerful Opportunity (Media Coverage)
Author(s): Mary Ellen Alu
Publication: Lehigh Bulletin
Date: 3/7/2016
Abstract: In 2011, Lehigh opened a new chapter in its increasing commitment to diversity and interdisciplinary education when it selected Africana Studies as its first academic “cluster,” bringing together scholars/faculty in English, history, religion studies, theater, journalism, and art, architecture and design. Over the past four years, the program has developed powerful public programming, including a 2015 conference on Malcolm X's life and legacy that attracted scholars from around the world.
