As the 2014 guest lecturer, Ms. Walker will explore social justice issues from her unique womanist and black feminist perspective. Bringing scholarship and activism together, Ms. Walker will also reflect on the complementary missions of DAAS and CEW.

Nicola’s Books will have pre-signed books available for purchase in the lobby during this event.

The Zora Neale Hurston Lecture at the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies honors Ms. Hurston, the most prolific African-American woman writer of her time, who brought to life the power, richness and complexity of black cultures for many readers.
