United Nations talk March 18, 2013


Most recently in March of this year, I had an unexpected invitation to speak at the United Nations on the occasion of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.  It was an honor to share insights from my research, writing and other professional experiences with NGOs that are affiliated with the United Nations.      It was  a privilege to be able to honor their lives and contributions of enslaved black Americans.

My intervention is within the first 15 minutes of this online previously streamed video:
