Meet Our Speaker: Dr. Kendra Parker
Kindred by Octavia Butler
Dr. Kendra Parker will be on campus on Monday, October 8th. Her lecture will be at 4:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall with a Q&A and reception to follow. Dr. Parker’s lecture is entitled “Kindred at (Nearly) 40: A Challenge for Our Changing Same.” She will discuss the importance of the neo-slave narrative genre as one point of entry in understanding how the legacy Butler leaves with Kindred should inspire us to think about and participate in allyship, civil disobedience, and resistance.
