Programs: CU on the Weekend

Presented by Polly McLean, Associate Professor, Media Studies

This talk explores the effects of the Great War on the then 38 year-old University of Colorado and its response to the war, its system of education, its faculty, students and the one black woman trailblazer who came to CU to chart a new course as a representative of Du Bois’s Talented Tenth.

The lecture is in English and no registration is required. The presentation is part of CU on the Weekend, which is free and open to the public. Classroom opens 30 minutes before start time. Seating is limited to the first 200 people.
