The Department of Black Studies Graduate Emphasis in conjunction with the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education presents Joyce King, the Benjamin E. Mays Professor of Teaching, Learning and Leadership at George State University as the Black History Month Distinguished Lecturer for 2013. Dr. King is the author of the book, Black Education: A Transformative Research & Action Agenda for the New Century, published by the American Education Research Association, the premier association of research in American education, in 2005, as part of a multiyear study of education in America. Her work draws heavily on methodologies and epistemologies of Black Studies, particularly the work of our late Professor Clyde Woods on “blues epistemologies” in African American culture. Please join us in the Pollock Theatre at 5 pm on Monday, February 25, 2013 to hear her lecture, “What We Know and How We Know,” a critical look at American education today.
