Dr. Molefi Kete Asante is the renowned chair of Africology and African American studies at Temple University. This sought-after scholar of the African Diaspora, who introduced the concept of Afrocentricity, has written and co-authored over 90 books, including his latest work with educator, Dr. Nah Dove, Being Human Being: Transforming the Race Discourse, which seeks to present a vision of a united humanity. Dr. Asante explores what it means to be human, the myth of race, and the importance of common identity. Being Human Being demonstrates that the only race is the human race.
The event is co-sponsored by Jefferson Community College and the Watertown Juneteenth Action Committee. Visit https://bit.ly/jccevent2 to register for this event.
