UPDATE – This event has been rescheduled from Oct. 6 to Oct. 26.
A graduate of the University of Chicago in Anthropology, Jori Lewis is an award-winning independent writer and editor who writes about the environment and agriculture mostly from the Global South. Her new book, Slaves for Peanuts, discusses how demand for peanut oil in Europe ensured that slavery in Africa would persist well into the twentieth century, long after the European powers had officially banned it in the territories they controlled.
Please join Africana Studies for her rescheduled lecture on Wed., Oct. 26 at 12:10 p.m. in the Gendebien Room of Skillman Library. Lunch will be available!
