Hanes Lecture Series schedule announced

Winston-Salem State University’s College of Arts, Sciences, Business and Education (CASBE) will present three lectures this semester as part of the John W. and Anna Hodgin Hanes Lecture Series.

  • "Tuskegee and Obamacare: Fulfilling America's Promise of Healthcare Justice,” at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 in the Donald J. Reaves Student Activities Center, Room 100, on the campus of WSSU. The lecture will be presented by Dr. Darryl Scriven, CASBE dean. Scriven argues that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) embodies the kind of substantive policy that begins to atone for past healthcare injustice and is necessary to protect vulnerable populations from future abuses.
  • “The Man-Not,” at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 12 in the Hall Patterson Building, Room 228. The lecture will be presented by Dr. Tommy J. Curry, a professor of philosophy at Texas A&M University and a winner of a 2018 American Book Awards for his work “The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and Dilemmas of Black Manhood.”
  • "The Very Idea of the Police," at 6:30 p.m. on March 26, in DJR, Room 100. The lecture will be presented by Dr. Scriven.
