Name: Sunday Lecture Series at OCHM: Dr. Omar Ali
Date: February 24, 2019
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EST
Event Description:
Please join us for a lecture from Dr. Omar Ali titled "Understanding Black History as American History". African Americans have played an integral role in the creation and development of the United States from the colonial period to the present. Since 1619 when the first twenty Africans were brought to the shores of the Chesapeake to the election of the nation’s first black president, black men and women have contributed to the economic, political, and cultural growth of the U.S. Much of how U. S. history is taught, however, marginalizes the African American narrative. This presentation will engage audiences in an exploration of how “Black History” is “American History” without glorifying the contributions of men and women of African descent, yet demonstrating their significance in shaping America’s narrative. Sponsored by the NC Humanities Council.
