Annual Lecture Offers Insights on Black History Scholarship

Feb 18, 2021

The Black History Month Lecture is an annual tradition at Trinity, and on Feb. 15, the History Department hosted the lecture as a virtual roundtable discussion.

According to Professor of History David Brodnax, Sr., Ph.D., new problems present new opportunities. “In lieu of our normal practice of having one person come to campus to speak, we have the chance to bring in five phenomenal people joining us via Zoom to have a roundtable discussion,” he said.

The presenters focused on different aspects of the “Current and Future State of Black History Scholarship.”

Brodnax moderated the event, which featured:

— Mr. Dwain Coleman, University of Iowa

— Dr. Tobin Miller Shearer, University of Montana

— Dr. Emmett G. Price III, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

— Dr. Silvana Siddali, Saint Louis University

— Dr. Dana Weiner, Wilfrid Laurier University

The lecture is available on Trinity’s YouTube Channel.
