National Archives Virtual Panel Discussion: The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity

February 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity 

The Black family has been a topic of study across disciplines—history, literature, the visual arts, film,  sociology, anthropology, and social policy. It has been described as a rich tapestry for exploring African  Americans past and present and its complexity as the foundation of African American life and history.

A  panel will discuss these ideas and perspectives including family traditions, brothers and sisters, power couples, and community. Moderated by Ida E. Jones, University Archivist at Morgan State University,  panelists include Allison Parker, author of Unceasing Militant: The Life of Mary Church Terrell; Darius  Young, author of Robert R. Church Jr. and the African American Political Struggle; John Whittington  Franklin and Karen Roberts Franklin, Franklin Global LLC, Managing Members; and Barbara Spencer  Dunn, ASALH Vice President for Membership & Contributor and Member of the Black History 365 (BH365) Professional Development Team.
