Dr. Kevin Quashie presents Social Justice Lecture

Dr. Kevin Quashie, a cultural studies and theory professor at Smith College, presented the Social Justice Lecture “Quiet, Justice, Love” on Oct. 15 on the Gulfport campus of Stetson University College of Law.

Dr. Quashie’s lecture explored how the idea of quiet can impact characterizations of African-American culture, often linked with the idea of resistance and the yearning for justice.

Dr. Quashie is the author of several books, most recently, The Sovereignty of Quiet: Beyond Resistance in Black Culture.

Stetson’s Social Justice Lecture Series, grounded in Stetson’s values, serves as a platform for discussion around personal and social responsibility, and as a catalyst for participants to effect change throughout the world.

The free event was open to the public.
