March 17, 2015

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM


701 S. Morgan Street



AAST Presents Dr. Michael E. Crutcher Jr. for the annual Grace Holt Lecture.

When: Tuesday, March 17th at 4:00 pm
Where: The Institute for the Humanities - Lower Level Stevenson Hall

Dr. Crutcher's lecture will examine the politics of race, urban affairs, criminalization and education in the iconic city of New Orleans, called the “fountainhead of African America Culture” by Zora Neale Hurston. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, even before the waters receded, questions arose concerning the city’s future viability and the government response to its physical, social and economic crisis. This talk will provide an overview of the current state of New Orleans—and some of the Katrina-related issues that persist.
