Professor Michele Ronnick of Wayne State University will give a lecture as part of the new exhibit, “14 Black Classicists,” at the Art, Design, and Architecture Museum. The talk describes the work of African-American classical scholars who taught Greek and Latin at the college or university level following the Civil War. These scholars made pathbreaking achievements, opening up fields like philology (the study of language) and paving the way for African-Americans to attend college.

The exhibit, 14 Black Classicists, is organized by Professor Ronnick and was brought to UCSB by Professor Helen Morales, the Hellenic Studies Committee, and the Department of Classics, thanks to the generosity of UCSB’s Argyropoulos endowment in Hellenic Studies and is co-sponsored by the Department of Black Studies.
