Dr. Higginbotham, who received the 2014 National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama, is a renowned historian whose work has influenced the inclusion of women’s perspectives and voices in the development of oral history reports.

Her lecture, titled “‘The Metalanguage of Race’: Then and Now,” will take place on Thursday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries, room 271. 

A reception sponsored by the Athens Area Black History Bowl will follow the lecture.
