Dr. Maurice Wallace will visit Bradley University


Pay Equity Day..the day that represents the Gender Wage Gap...is here!  Women, on average, make only about 77% of what men are paid annually, so a day in April is desginated to mark the fact that women would have to work until this date to make what the average man made by December 31, 2014.  We'll be selling baked goods to commemorate this pay differential (Men will pay 1.00 and women will pay .77 cents) -- and to benefit the Center for Prevention of Abuse.

We're inviting Dr. Maurice Wallace to campus for March 31, 2014...If all goes according to plan, he'll be giving a lecture about the image of the "thug" and how the thug-image has impacted mental health for African American men, and the social cost for all of us. 

The Body Project presents "Hood Life; or, Tracking Trayvon: Sentiment, Surveillance and Disappearing Black Boyhood," a lecture by Dr. Maurice Wallace of Duke University, funded by the University Intellectual and Cultural Activities Committee (ICAC) in conjunction with Bradley University’s year-long celebration of Civil Rights—Past and Present.  Dr. Wallace is a preeminent scholar of African American Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, American Literature, and Visual Culture.  His lecture, followed by Q & A, will begin at 6:30 pm on Monday, March 31st in the Marty Theater, located in the basement of Bradley University’s Michel Student Center.  This event is free and open to the public.
