Carolina Public Humanities Series: “Lunch with Friends and Strangers” featuring African Biographies
June 5, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Carolina Public Humanities is hosting a free lunchtime series beginning this week. Three of the featured guests will be discussing figures from African history. CPH Executive Director, Max Owre, will host the Virtual Series and will talk one-on-one with UNC professors as they discuss leading figures in history — some likely strangers, some more familiar. Each lunch starts at 12:00 noon and runs approximately 30 minutes. Conversations will be accessed via a Zoom webinar (not a Zoom meeting). The lunches will be recorded and made available via the Carolina Public Humanities YouTube page. Details for accessing the webinar will be sent by the morning of the lunch. Register for one or all in the series.

June 5 – Lisa Lindsay, professor and chair of the Department of History, will discuss James Churchill Vaughn – Finding Real African Roots
