SXU African American Studies hosts student lecture series

Opening themes include "skin tones" and "Thomas Jefferson's views"

Chicago (Oct. 25, 2010) Saint Xavier University’s African American Studies Program will host a student lecture series in which two undergraduate students will showcase their original research on African American culture.

The lecture will take place at 2 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 4 in the Warde Academic Center’s Butler Reception Room at the Chicago campus, 3700 W. 103rd St. The event is free and open to the public.

Magan Marshall will discuss the communicative relationship between light-skinned and dark-skinned black women. Marshall examines the verbal and non-verbal messages from other African Americans that confirm or reject individuals and the significance of these messages to racial identity construction.

Daniel Geiter will discuss his research on the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and George Wythe, which shows that Wythe was Jefferson’s law professor and mentor for more than 30 years. Geiter also will discuss Jefferson’s views on African Americans.

Do you not see the irony here? I'm kinda of puzzled, whether the author of this article a real person or a robot.
No matter how you slice it, life is full of random shit like this. Better get used to it.
In my humble opinion, there's a lot of B.S. on this topic all over the internet. How do I know you are not just trying to sell something?
How do people blog on other people's blogs? Can I guest post on your site, I have lots of interesting articles.
