“Growing up Poor and Black in America: The Impact of the 60s from the Vantage Point of an Intellectual and Community Organizer” will be her talk.

Fulani, a developmental psychologist and pioneering figure in independent politics, became the first woman and the first African American to get on the ballot in all fifty states running for president of the United States. She did that in 1988.

She is also a pioneer in using play and performance to help support the development of young (and older people) with her work in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and the San Francisco Bay Area with the All Stars Project and Cops and Kids: Operation Conversation.

Dr. Omar Ali, dean of the Lloyd International Honors College, will give the introduction. His first two books were on the history of African Americans and independent political movements in the United States, from the Abolitionists and Black Populists through the Civil Rights and Black Power eras.

The event is sponsored by the Lloyd International Honors College.
