I wanted to let everyone know that Professor Jeffries is on campus and  
his lecture is going forward.

I appreciate all the interest and I hope many people will be able to  
attend, despite the ominous weather.

I look forward to see you later.

Democracy Matters and the Africana/ Black Studies program invite the  
campus community to a presentation by Hasan Kwame Jeffries on "Freedom  
Politics: From the Black Panthers to Barack Obama," Feb. 25, 4pm in  
the College Union Ballroom. The lecture and discussion will be  
followed by a reception and book signing.

The presentation is based on Jeffries' newly published book, _Bloody  
Lowndes: Civil Rights and Black Power in the Alabama Black Belt_, NYU  
press, 2009. Jeffries is an Associate Professor of History at The Ohio  
State University and holds a joint appointment with the Kirwan
