Robinson, founder of TransAfrica and author of "The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks," will present the keynote address for Black History Month activities in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8. A reception will follow at the Third World Center.
Robinson is president of TransAfrica, a Washington, D.C-based advocacy organization dedicated to influencing U.S. policy toward African and Caribbean nations. In "The Debt," published in 1999, he calls for reparations to African-Americans for racism stemming from years of slavery.
The theme for Black History Month is "Social Justice," and Robinson is expected to speak on the role of students and the academy in that process.
