The Department of Africology & African American Studies and the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection present a conversation with Haki R. Madhubuti. Join us on Friday, October 5 at 2 pm at The Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection.
In 1967, Madhubuti, along with Carolyn Rodgers and Johari Amini created the Third World Press. The Third World Press was intended to be an outlet for African American literature and scholarship. Fifty years later, the Third World Press continues to operate as the largest independently owned Black publisher in the United States. The Third World Press has proudly published authors such as Gwendolyn Brooks, Asa G. Hilliard, Amiri Baraka, Askia M. Toure, Sonia Sanchez, Chancellor Williams, Derrick Bell, Diane D. Turner, Jacob H. Carruthers, John Henrik Clarke, Marc Lamont Hill, Maulana Karenga, and Wade Nobles. Along with being the founder, publisher, and chairman of the board of the Third World Press, Madhubuti has published 28 of his own books.
This program is in association with the Organization of African American Studies Graduate Students.
