UNCC’s Personally Speaking Lecture Series is designed to connect the community with UNCC faculty and their work. The next installment is on Tuesday, February 7th, at 6:30pm, at UNC Charlotte Center City, 320 East 9th Street.
Dr. Hicks, associate professor of history, and author of Talk With You Like a Woman: African American Women, Justice, and Reform in New York, 1890-1935, will talk about the impact of racism and sexism on these women and their families, who sometimes turned to laws and the justice system to try to protect – and at times control – these women. Through their stories Hicks sheds light on urban reform and criminal justice issues.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m., with the talk at 6:30 p.m. A reception and book signing will follow. Attendance is free, but attendees must register by emailing CLAS-Event@uncc.edu or by calling 704-687-0085. Parking will be provided by the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and is at 707 North Brevard Street, at the intersection with 11th Street. This is the third event in the 2011-2012 Personally Speaking Series, A Published Scholars Presentation Series and Reception presented by the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and J. Murrey Atkins Library.
