Join us for a panel discussion with author Ted Segal A.B.'77 to learn more about the desegregation of Duke in 1963, student activism, and the events leading up to the Allen Building takeover in 1969. These events are chronicled in detail in Ted’s new book Point of Reckoning: The Fight for Racial Justice at Duke University (Duke Press, 2021). Professor Adriane Lentz-Smith will moderate the discussion that will also feature Duke alumnae, Bertie Howard A.B.'76 and Janice Gill Williams A.B.'72, P'93, who will share their unique perspectives as Black student activists at Duke and participants in the takeover. Dr. Wesley Hogan A.M.'95, Ph.D.'00, Director of Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies, will also add her insights based on decades of civil rights scholarship.
