CCSU Lyceum lecture will focus on race relations, immigrantion

Professor David Goldfield will present a lecture titled “The New Immigration and Race Relations in the U.S. Today” Apr. 6 at Clayton College & State University. Goldfield's lecture will take place in the University's Arts & Sciences Building, room 132 at 12:15 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

"We are a nation of immigrants. But where do African Americans fit in this picture?" asks Goldfield. "And, especially in the Southeast, where traditions and social relations have historically divided along lines of color, how will the surge of immigrants from Latin America and Southeast Asia affect these historic patterns?"

Goldfield is the Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and is the editor of the Journal of Urban History. He is the author of "Black, White, and Southern: Race Relations and Southern Culture" (1990), which received the Mayflower Award for Nonfiction and the Outstanding Book Award from the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Human Rights, and "Still Fighting the Civil War: The American South and Southern History" (2002).

The Clayton State Lyceum series, in conjunction with the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Distinguished Lectureship program is sponsoring the lecture.
