A James Robinson Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies Distinguished Lecture by Isaac Saney, scholar on Cuba and author of the acclaimed book, Cuba: A Revolution In Motion.
7:00 pm, Wednesday, February 15
Room 303, Dalhousie Student Union Building
6136 University Avenue
Prof Saney will address why Cuba has exercised such a profound hold and influence on the worldwide Black struggle for equality, freedom and self-determination. Examining the more than 53-year history of the Cuba Revolution (encompassing its successes and setbacks), Saney will discuss the meaning and relevance of Cuba for present-day struggles and imaginings of a world centred on social justice, human dignity and genuine emancipation.
A reception starting at 6pm will be held prior to the public lecture.
The James Robinson Johnston lecture series aims to create dialogue between the African Canadian community and Dalhousie University on issues that impact the African Diaspora locally, nationally and internationally. Following the mandate of the Chair to increase the profile of Black Canadian Studies, the lecture series creates bridges between the university and wider African Canadian communities.
