Weber State University is honored to welcome the distinguished historian Dr. Waldo E. Martin.
A professor of History at UC Berkeley, he is the author of No Coward Soldiers: Black Cultural Politics in Postwar American, Brown Vs. Board of Education: A Brief History with Documents, and The Mind of Frederick Douglass.
Based on twelve years of meticulous archival research, Black Against Empire is the first comprehensive overview and analysis of the history and politics of the Black Panther Party. The lecture will analyze key political questions, such as why so many young black people across the country risked their lives for the revolution, why the Party grew most rapidly during the height of repression, and why allies abandoned the Party at its peak of influence.
More information on Dr. Martin can be found here.
