Forgive the self indulgence, but I’m spending ten days or so at Duke University on a grant from the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture. I’m conducting research on a couple of book projects and on Thursday afternoon from 3:00 to 4:00 in the Rare Book Room of Duke University’s Perkins Library I will be giving a talk, “Tired Feet, Rested Souls and Empty Pockets: Bus Boycotts and the Politics of Race in the U.S. and South Africa,” which will be sponsored by the Franklin Center and Duke Libraries. If you are going to be anywhere near the Triangle Area I hope you will swing by. I’ve also posted a couple of diary entries about my trip at dcat.
