Scholars To Discuss Interracial Friendships



     ROCHESTER, MI - Oakland University will present a panel discussion titled "Brother Mine and Beyond: Blacks, Jews and American Identity" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17.

     Written by Oakland University Associate Professor Kathleen Pfeiffer, "Brother Mine: The Correspondence of Jean Toomer and Waldo Frank" explores the interracial friendship of two noted writers – one black and one Jewish – during the 1920s. Pfeiffer will provide opening comments for the discussion on Thursday.

     Following this, several accomplished OU scholars will engage in an interdisciplinary conversation dealing with broader issues of interaction between the black and Jewish communities throughout the 20th century.

     In addition to Pfeiffer, panelists will include:
  • Louis B. Gallien, Jr., dean of the School of Education and Human Services
  • Michael Kevin Weiss, an assistant professor in the Department of Teacher Development and Education Studies
  • Karen A. J. Miller, an associate professor in the Department of History
  • Jacqueline Manning, a student in the Department of English
     Sponsored by the School of Education and Human Services and the College of Arts and Sciences, the panel discussion will take place in Banquet Room B of Oakland Center, which is located in the heart of OU's campus.
