2017-18 Arts & Humanities: Courageous Conversations with Bobby Seale

Courageous Conversations: ARHU Resists Hate and Bias

Hate and bias are persistent global problems. What does it look like to engage in courageous conversations that speak to these difficult realities across personal, political, and historical frames? The 2017-18 Arts and Humanities Dean’s Lecture Series (DLS) provides an opportunity for the campus to join together for provocative conversations about these issues across disciplines.

View highlights from the second conversation in this DLS focused on 'The Historical’, with famed author, founding chairman and national organizer of the Black Panther Party, Bobby Seale (@BobbySealecom). Mr. Seale presented “Resistance: From the Sixties to Trump,” followed by a moderated discussion with UMD faculty from the departments of History and African American Studies.
