1619 Lecture Series

Wednesday, March 27, 2019


The 1619 Lecture Series features four distinguished SCSU faculty members presenting scholarship related to African American history, culture, and politics. These lectures are part of SCSU’s year-long commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans brought to the United States.

Today's featured speaker is Dr. Jonathan Wharton, assistant professor of political science.


 The 64 Days of Nonviolence officially begins each year on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, and ends on April 4, the day we commemorate Dr. King. In our sixteenth annual observation of the 64 Days at Southern Connecticut State University, we continue to celebrate the peace and justice heritage in many of our cultures and heritages, including our observation of Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Asian/Pacific Heritage Month.
