For the final talk in the AY 21-22 “Reimagining Together” series, the Africana Studies Program invited Dr. Farah Jasmine Griffin, the William B. Ransford Professor of English and Comparative Literature and African Amerian Studies at Columbia University. She was also the inaugural chair of Columbia’s African American and African Diaspora Studies Department. Dr. Griffin will give a lecture about her most recent book, Read Until You Understand: The Profound Wisdom of Black Life and Literature. Before the lecture, the program hosted a community read of the book in partnership with Frugal Bookstore, Boston’s first Black-owned bookstore located in the heart of Roxbury right around the corner from Northeastern.
