The African and African-Diaspora Studies program at Kennesaw State University is pleased to announce they have received a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council for the upcoming Walter Rodney Public Speaker's Series.

In a message announcing the approval of the grant, Ms. Arden Williams, Senior Program Officer at the Georgia Humanities Council wrote "On behalf of the Georgia Humanities Council, let me be the first to congratulate you on receiving a grant for your recent proposal. The grants were very competitive this time around and we were only able to fund half of the proposals we received. So, great job!"
