Importance of African Studies topic of "Desert with the Experts"
During this event, faculty experts from throughout the College of Arts and Sciences will share their knowledge over dessert with alumni of the college and other participants. For a fun twist, the experts will provide their favorite dessert recipes for participants to make ahead of time and enjoy during the event, or to try later.
Over a helping of his favorite dessert, strawberry ice cream, Dr. Daryl Carter will discuss the importance of African Americans, equality and inclusion. “Africana Studies sits at the academic forefront of ETSU's efforts to educate students, faculty, staff and the community about the importance of diversity in the 21st century,” he said.
Carter, who is serving as interim director of ETSU’s Africana Studies Program, is a professor in the university’s Department of History. He earned his B.S. in political science and M.A. in history from ETSU and his Ph.D. in history from the University of Memphis, and joined the university faculty in 2008. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book “Brother Bill: President Clinton and the Politics of Race and Class.”
