The College for Equity and Diversity will also air a film featuring the history of the Black Panther Party. According to the College for Equity and Diversity’s description of the film, “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” is the “first feature length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party, its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails.” You can watch the film in the Union Theater Feb. 21 at 5:30 p.m. and stick around for light snacks and discussion with Dr. Wilfred Samuels, Associate Professor of English and Ethnic Studies at the U.

According to the College for Equity and Diversity’s description, the lecture will “[…] reveal how photographic technologies like the daguerreotype, the carte de visite and the stereoview transformed how narratives of U.S. slavery were written, read, circulated and reproduced.” The lecture will be Feb. 23 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Sorenson Arts & Education Complex Auditorium.
