Holtzclaw Lecture Series - "William H. Holtzclaw: The Man, The Mission, and the Mask" (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Holtzclaw Lecture Series - "William H. Holtzclaw: The Man, The Mission, and the Mask"
Abstract: William Andrews, the E. Maynard Adams Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will speak on “William H. Holtzclaw: the Man, the Mission, and the Mask” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 28 at the Margaret Walker Center in Ayer Hall on the Jackson State University campus. A reception is before the lecture at 6 p.m.
His lecture will discuss Holtzclaw’s autobiography, “Black Man’s Burden,” along with William Pickens’ “Bursting Bonds,” in light of Booker T. Washington’s “Up from Slavery.” Holtzclaw and Pickens were both Booker T. Washington protégés, but while Holtzclaw remained a Bookerite, Pickens had become by 1922 a supporter of Du Bois. The talk will examine both men’s work, with an emphasis on the influence of Washington’s classic autobiography on both.
The Holtzclaw Lecture Series is designed to bring nationally recognized scholars and experts on African American education in the South for public lectures in a variety of venues around the state. The lecture is co-sponsored by the Mississippi Humanities Council and the Margaret Walker Center, with major funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
