12:15 PM Race, Ethnicity, and Politics Speaker Series The Department of Political Science and International Relations, would like to invite you to participate in the 2020-2021 USD Race, Ethnicity, and Politics Speaker Series. This is the inaugural year of the series as it aims to examine the power of race and ethnicity to shape society and politics at the local level, at the international level, and comparatively.

Our second guest speaker, Niambi Carter (Howard University) will discuss her award-winning book, American While Black: African Americans, Immigration and the Limits of Citizenship. In the book, Dr. Carter argues that immigration serves as a reminder of the limited inclusion of African Americans in the body politic. As Carter contends, blacks use the issue of immigration as a way to understand the nature and meaning of their American citizenship-specifically the way that white supremacy structures and constrains not just their place in the American political landscape, but their political opinions as well. Dr. Carter draws on original interview material and empirical data on African American political opinion to offer the first theory of black public opinion toward immigration.

7:00 PM  Worldview Project Book Club: The Girl with the Louding Voice Please join us for the Worldview Project monthly book club. This month we will be discussing best-selling book, The Girl with the Louding Voice - by Abi Daré.

bi Daré’s debut novel, The Girl with the Louding Voice, is like a blend of Etaf Rum’s A Woman Is No Man and Tara Westover’s Educated (so buckle up). In it Adunni, a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl, endures a series of unfortunate events in her quest to get an education. The alternative is a life of servitude, something Adunni experiences firsthand when, after escaping an arranged marriage, she lands herself in an even more precarious position in the employ of a sadistic wife and her debauched husband. Buoyed by the memory of her late mother, who wanted her daughter to buck cultural confines and find her (louding) voice, and with the help of a few unlikely allies, Adunni sets about overcoming her sorry lot. The Girl with the Louding Voice is a rousing tale of courage and pluck, and unexpectedly charming. It’s also a reminder of the power of books, especially for those of us afforded the luxury of taking reading, and learning, and dreaming for granted.-Erin Kodicek, Amazon Book Review

The Worldview Project Book Club normally meets on the first Tuesday of every month, but has been delayed one week because of the election.

To join us, please contact Sharon at s.payne@thewvp.org and she will provide you with the Zoom link to join in the discussion. It is not required (although almost everyone does) to read the book to participate.

"I traveled all over the world, but I never gone so far as I have with this book club." - Wendy (a regular participant).
