The life and times of Malcolm X will be the subject
of one-man show at UM-Dearborn March 25
The performance, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Lecture Hall B at the School of Management Building at UM-Dearborn.
Pace, a professor of anthropology and American studies at Centre College in Kentucky, has presented public humanities programs for more than 20 years to national and international audiences, including in nine African countries, based on characterizations of African American historical figures.
Several years ago, he presented a similar program at UM-Dearborn on Frederick Douglass. "His performance here was truly phenomenal, and drew a standing-room-only audience," according to Claude Jacobs, associate professor of anthropology at UM-Dearborn who arranged the program. "People have been talking about that show and asking for him to return."
The performance at UM-Dearborn is sponsored by the King-Chavez-Parks
Visiting Scholars Program, the Office of the Provost, the African-American
Studies Program and the Association of Student Anthropologists.
