Black History Month: Derrais Carter

Join us for a lecture by Dr. Derrais Carter, assistant professor of Black Studies at Portland State University. His research interests include 20th century African American history, gender and sexuality studies, and black cultural studies. He is co-editor of The Iconic Obama, 2007-2009: Essays on Media Representations of the Candidate and New President (2012). He is currently writing Obscene Material, a book examining black girlhood and scandal in 1919 Washington, D.C. Carter is also a member of the Queering Slavery Working Group. This interdisciplinary scholarly collective uses Tumblr to place black queer studies in conversation with the history of enslavement.
