WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 25, 6-7 p.m.
WHERE: World Cafe Live Upstairs, 3025 Walnut St., Philadelphia
Dr. Zuberi will discuss the history of African-descent populations in Latin America and why the political center of Africans and the African Diaspora is shifting to Brazil, Colombia and other nations in Latin America. The talk will also examine cultural and historical differences in affirmative-action policies across these populations.
The talk is part of the Penn Lightbulb CafĂ©, a free public-lecture series presented by the School of Arts & Sciences and the Office of University Communications that takes arts, humanities and social-sciences scholarship out of the classroom for a night on the town. Each hour-long talk begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by an audience Q&A. CafĂ© events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Menu items will be available for purchase.
