This event is co-sponsored by the Starr Center and presented by our friends in the Black Studies Program at Washington College.
Bucknell University's Spanish and Africana Studies Professor Nick R. Jones analyzes "black speech" in Spanish theater from the 1500's through the 1700's to show how black Africans and their descendants were rendered legible in performative literary texts.
