Baker-Nord Center flierOn Thursday, March 21, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities will present “Eslanda Robeson: Black Internationalism & the Fight Against White Supremacy and Empire in the 20th Century,” featuring Barbara Ransby.

Ransby—a historian, writer and longtime political activist from the University of Illinois at Chicago—will discuss the spirit of unity and solidarity that existed among an eclectic global female community of politicians, radicals and intellectuals from Asia, Africa and the Caribbean during their emergence from the shackles of colonialism in the 1940s and ’50s and how they found a common cause with one another.

The lecture will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Clark Hall Room 309.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended by calling Maggie Kaminski in the Baker-Nord Center at 216.368.2242 or emailing
