Dr. Karsonya Wise Whitehead, author of "Sparking the Genius," will outline critical moments in American history that defined the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement, with the release of the Emancipation Proclamation, and the modern Civil Rights Movement in 1963. A book-signing will follow the lecture, which is part of Dr. Whitehead's first national book signing tour.
Dr. Whitehead is an assistant professor of communication and African and African-American studies at Loyola University Maryland. She is a motivational speaker, master teacher in African-American History, award-winning former Baltimore City middle school teacher, and a three-time New York Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker.
