Black History Month Speaker Series 2

Live on OState TV • 12p

Hosted by the Center for Africana Studies and the Office of Multicultural Affairs

"How Long Til' Black Futures Month?" will be presented by Andrew R. Belton, Ph.D. Dr. Belton's presentation will make explicit certain connections between hip hop's cultural response to racial capitalism and the summer 2020 Black Lives Matter protests as part of a long Black musical history and movement towards social justice. 

Dr. Belton is an assistant professor of Black diasporic literature and culture in the Department of English at Oklahoma State University. His current book project, Hip Hop Illiterate: Black Hermeneutics and the Limits of an Anti-Black World, centers the hip hop emcee as a cultural figure that updates the historic struggles to care for and protect Black Life for the twenty-first century and beyond. His writing has appeared in academic journals such as PMLA, with non-academic interests including experimental filmmaking and beat production.

The presentation title is taken from the N.K. Jemisin short story collection of a slightly different/same name.

Flash Prose | Led by Cassidy McCants

6-week workshops, $225 to register

A piece of flash fiction is a story stripped down to its essence, usually consisting of no more than 1,000 words. In this generative course, we’ll study contemporary examples of flash fiction and nonfiction, and students will respond to writing prompts in order to create their own original flash prose pieces. We’ll practice saying more with fewer words; we’ll explore language and discover ways to push it to its greatest potential. By the end of the course, students should feel comfortable reading and responding to flash fiction. I also hope we’ll create a generous, nurturing space in which students feel eager to share their work. This will be a place for experimentation and practice.
