In the second talk in this year’s African Studies Lecture Series. Dr. A.B. Assensoh (Indiana University) presented “A Comparative Study of African Decolonization Processes and the US Civil Rights Movement.” He spoke to this quarter’s theme of “Africa/World” which seeks to show Africa in a larger global context. His talk provided a comparison of the leadership of the two movements and processes, bringing African American and African political and social histories in contact.

Dr. Assensoh is historian and Professor Emeritus at Indiana University. He has been affiliated with IU’s African American and African Diaspora Department for many years, and has published books across African and Africa-American Studies (Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and America’s Quest for Racial Integration, African Military History and Politics, 1900-Present, and African Political Leadership). He is currently working on a new manuscript about Malcolm X, which will be co-authored with his wife, Dr. Yvette Alex-Assensoh.
