Event Details

 

Sekou Sundiata was writer-in-residence and professor at Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts for 20 years. As an educator, he embraced multiple, contradictory identities and insisted on the integration of art, activism, and personal voice both as a critical citizen and engaged teacher. This conversation will explore how he successfully crossed social, civic, and educational boundaries to "create dangerously." The panel discussion will be moderated by David Scobey, Executive Dean, The New School for Public Engagement. Panelists include Julie Ellison, Professor of American Culture, English, and Art and Design at the University of Michigan; Richard Harper, Assistant Professor, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music; Gladstone Fluney Hutchinson, Associate Professor of Economics at Lafayette College; and Brian Lewis, former student of Sundiata and current New School professor. Presented by The New School for Public Engagement and Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts and produced by MAPP International Productions.
