Rampersad Visit to UMW this Week

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Arnold Rampersad, the Hughes biographer, will be at UMW this Thursday!

Hughes biography, Volume I

He will be delivering a Great Lives lecture on Arthur Ashe, AND visiting Professor Tweedy’s 11:00 African American lit class to talk about Hughes.  I am planning on attending this class period, which is in Combs 003.  Tweedy says that he thinks there are 4 or so extra chairs, plus floor/standing room.  If any of you are free right after Long Poems on Thursday and would like to attend, please let me know by sending me an email so I can get a headcount.  It’s a pretty cool opportunity since Rampersad is, at least now, the definitive biographer.
