Morning Keynote with Dr. William Cross, Jr.
April 15, 2016 @ 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM
Dr. Cross is “old school” and his involvement in the racial-cultural discourse dates back to 1971. He exited the Graduate Center-CUNY in 2008 as professor emeritus, with the intention of retiring, but as he tells his friends, he is a total failure at retiring, and has since held positions at UNLV and is currently at the University of Denver. Dr. Cross took his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1976 and has held positions at Cornell University, Penn State University, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the Graduate Center-CUNY, UNLV and the University of Denver. His most recent work is an edited volume on black identity [Meaning Making, Internalized Racism and African American Identity] on SUNY Press and is due to be published in the spring of 2016. Jas Sullivan, Ph.D., of the LSU Political Science Department, is co-editor.
