On Monday, March 12th, Dr. Ethelene Whitmire, Professor at the Information School at University of Wisconsin—Madison, will give a lecture on the African American Diaspora in Denmark. Titled, “The Promise of Renewal: African Americans in 20th Century Denmark,” the lecture discusses Whitmire’s latest line of research, which was inspired after Dr. Whitmire was walking through a cemetery in Copenhagen in 2013 and saw a name that seemed out of place.

She received funding for this project from the American-Scandinavian Foundation and the Lois Roth Endowment.  She was a 2016-2017 Fulbright Scholar and visiting professor at the University of Copenhagen’s Center for Transnational American Studies. Her first book is "Regina Anderson Andrews, Harlem Renaissance Librarian" (University of Illinois Press, 2014). You can follow her project on Instagram

The event will take place in the Morris Library Reading room. A reception is scheduled for 4:00pm and the lecture will begin at 4:30pm This event is free and open to the public.
