Prof. Angela Dillard will speak at Marygrove College on Thursday, April 12 about the role of religion in social change in Detroit in the first half of the century.

Dr. Dillard is a associate professor at the Center for Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan. Dr. Dillard will discuss “True vs. False Religion: How Faith Mattered in Detroit’s Radical History.” The lecture based on her new book, Faith in The City: Preaching Radical Social Change in Detroit, coming out this spring from University of Michigan Press. The book is “a milestone study of religion's place in Detroit's protest communities from the 1930s to the 1960s.”

The lecture is part of the Institute for Detroit Studies' (http://www.marygrove.edu/ids/) "Defining Detroit" lecture series. The lecture is also part of this year's inaugural celebration of Marygrove's 8th president, Dr. David Fike.

The lecture is Thursday, April 12, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. in Alumnae Hall in the Madame Cadillac Building.

Be warned, this lady is pretty crazy. She guest-taught one of my classes one day, and aside from being extremely leftist, she can't pronounce Michigan. She says "mitch-again." What a weirdo.
