Third annual African American student leadership summit

Miami’s office of multicultural enrichment is host to the third annual African-American Student Summit, "Leadership by Example … Service through Sacrifice," Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21 and 22.

Students from three states and Miami students from three campuses are registered for the event, which will take place in the Shriver Center multipurpose rooms.

Beverly Guy-Sheftall will give the keynote address at 7 p.m. Friday, in the multipurpose rooms.

Sheftall, considered "the premier black feminist in historically black institutions," is the Anna Julia Cooper Professor of Women’s Studies at Spelman College. She is the founding director of Spelman’s Women’s Research and Resource Center and the founding co-editor of SAGE: A Scholarly Journal on Black Women.

Her recent publications include Words of Fire: An Anthology of African American Feminist Thought and Traps: African American Men on Gender and Sexuality.

Sheftall will also give a public lecture on "Remembering Our Forefathers" at 4 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Shriver Center multipurpose room C. This talk is sponsored by Miami’s black history celebration committee.

Both talks are free and open to the public.
