Sit A Spell Conversations X Pa’Lante Series: Vincent Adejumo

May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Florida Humanities, the Woodson African American Museum of Florida, Tombolo books, and St. Petersburg Poet Laureate Gloria Muñoz for the last program of the series “Sit A Spell Conversation X Pa’Lante: Black Voices in the Humanities.” This series is a conversation program featuring Black writers, educators and scholars. The third and final program features Dr. Vincent Adejumo of the University of Florida

Dr. Vincent Adejumo’s work encompasses a practical approach to unearthing and searching for sustainable solutions to the problems that African Americans encounter on a daily basis. Dr. Adejumo will share stories from his experiences as an educator and scholar who specializes in African American Studies, and teaches courses such as The Wire, Mentoring At-Risk Youth, Black Wall Street, and Black Masculinity. He will also encourage attendees to consider how we center the African American experience in the United States in our dialogues, community, and in education.

Dr. Adejumo will be in conversation with Silk Jazmyne Hindus. Hindus is a book reviewer, essayist, fiction writer and teaching artist for Kitchen Table Literary Arts, Grubstreet Writers and The Porch.

Funding for this program is provided by Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with The Academy of American Poets, The Woodson African American Museum of Florida, Tombolo Books, and the City of St. Petersburg.
