The 39th Annual Marion Thompson Wright Lecture Series

February 16 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

THE EROTIC AS POWER: SEXUALITY AND THE BLACK EXPERIENCE

The Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience presents the 2019 MTW Conference at Rutgers University—Newark featuring:

E PATRICK JOHNSON | Ethnographer & Performer
MARCUS HUNTER | Sociologist
ALEXIS PAULINE GUMBS | Educator & Poet
CHERYL DUNYE | Film Director

The erotic is often seen as a realm of oppression and danger. But, as Audre Lorde argued forty years ago, it also contains the potential for empowerment and struggle. This tension will be explored as the 39th annual Marion Thompson Wright Lecture Series (MTW) brings together eminent scholars and performers to examine the poltical and social lives of the erotic in the African American experience.

The annual Black History Month conference will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Paul Robeson Campus Center, 350 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., on the campus of Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N). The conference is organized annually by the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at RU-N.

For additional information about the program, please visit ethnicity.rutgers.edu or contact Mehreen Mian at mmian@newark.rutgers.edu

All events are free and open to the public.
