Austin Peay's next Faculty Research Forum will feature a discussion on African Americans' struggle to maintain dual identities.

Dr. Alvin Hughes, professor of history, will present “Du Boisian Duality: Path to the Beloved Community” from 3-4:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 31, in UC 307.

“Du Bois asserted that African Americans should not proceed on the path to the beloved community of integration if it means the loss of one's own culture,” says Hughes. “Acquiring an appreciation of one's own history and culture is a pre-condition for an African American if he intends to survive in America …without losing his purpose or soul.”

The discussion is free and open to the public. For further information, telephone 7676.
