  • The International African Diaspora Film Festival has several documentary films of interest to Africana scholars. Of note are documentaries on CLR James, Cheikh Anta Diop, Malcolm X, and Winnie Mandela. Details/times at the link.
  • Our last class is next week (12/6), but I will be available during class time (6-8 PM) on the 13th in my office in Carman 398.
  • The final exam is on December 20 from 6-8 PM in our usual classroom.

On Wednesday December 6, we’ll have our final class meeting. Only one reading for this: “Can African People ave Themselves” in Dr. Clarke’s Notes for An African World Revolution (pp. 383-420). Please bring Maulana Karenga’s Introduction to Black Studies textbook with you also, since the second half of the class will be a review for the final exam.

You do not need the Amsterdam News this week . We will not be covering it.
