In connection with filmmaker Spike Lee’s visit to NSU, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences will host “Spiritual Identity: Multicultural Perspectives” on Thursday, Oct. 28. The event, featuring a talk by sociologist Phyllis Baker, Ph.D., will take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Parker Building, room 123B.
Lee has explored the topic of identity through film, largely from the African-American perspective. Baker, author of African-American Spirituality Thought and Culture and A Dreamer’s Journey, will expand on this point and examine how one’s spiritual identity is established, recognized, and developed—from anthropological, cross-cultural, and multidimensional points of view.
The college’s Division of Humanities welcomes Spike Lee, M.F.A., Academy Award-nominated director, producer, screenwriter, and actor, as the next guest in the Distinguished Speakers Series. Lee will speak at NSU on Wednesday, November 3, in the Arena at the Don Taft University Center.
