Event Description:

Gerald Horne, Ph.D., holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Princeton, a Ph.D. at Columbia University and a J.D. at the University of California, Berkeley. He served as chair of the Black Studies Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Horne held joint appointments with Communications Studies, the African and Afro-American Studies graduate program, and as director of the Black Cultural Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The late Manning Marable said, “Gerald Horne is one of the most gifted and insightful historians on racial matters of his generation.” Diane Fujino, director of the Center for Black Studies Research, said, “His work—on influential but overlooked historic figures, organizations, movements—has opened up whole fields of research and reshaped scholarly and public discussions of race, labor and global relations. His writings are daring and provocative in that they present perspectives that contest the mainstream narrative but, they are always based on extensive research.” Nikhil Pal Singh said, “He also makes an indispensable contribution to writing global history from the bottom up.”

Horne is the author of more than 30 books and 100 scholarly articles and reviews. He is a frequent contributor to Political Affairs, The Journal of African American History, Souls, Africana Studies, and the Journal of Latin American Studies, the Black Agenda Report, and Democracy Now. He has also served on the editorial boards of Science and Society and Race and Class.
