Event Description:
A professor of theology emeritus from Princeton University will talk about his personal journey studying and writing about African American history during this year’s Metcalfe Lecture, Wednesday, April 18, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Raynor Memorial Libraries Beaumier Suites BC.

Dr. Albert Raboteau, who attended Marquette in the late 1960s, is Henry W. Putnam Professor of Religion Emeritus at Princeton, where he spent most of his career. He will deliver his lecture, “A Fire in the Bones.”

He is the author of a number of books, including Slave Religion: The “Invisible Institution” in the Antebellum South (1978), Canaan Land: A Religious History of African Americans (2001), and A Sorrowful Joy: A Spiritual Journey of an African American Man in Late Twentieth Century America (2002).

He has received honorary doctorates from four universities and held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Guggenheim Foundation.

This event is one of Marquette’s contributions to the citywide “200 Nights of Freedom,” which commemorates the 200 consecutive nights of open housing marches in Milwaukee during 1967 and 1968. The protests were a direct cause of the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968. For more information, go to http://200nightsoffreedom.org.
