PUBLIC SECRETS, PUBLIC SCANDALS: THE EVENT OF DUKE LACROSSE Monday, April 30 – 4:30 PM – Griffin 3. A lecture by GRANT FARRED, Williams College Sterling Brown Visiting Professor of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of the Program in Literature at Duke University. from Linda A Saharczewski, Africana Studies Program

Farred is one of Duke’s Group of 88. Here is a piece that KC Johnson wrote about him a few months ago. Professor Johnson also mentioned a talk that another Group of 88 member, Mark Anthony Neal, gave at Williams last fall. What is it with Williams inviting all these Group of 88 members?

I would expect that Professor Joy James controls the funding for these talks. Someone should ask her. Perhaps the College could create a podcast of the speech. More on Farred here and here. Please tell us how the talk goes.
