“The Psychology of Race & Gender With Dr. Omowale Akitunde”
Through the generous support of: Douglas County
Dr. Omowale Akintunde is renowned as a public intellectual, academician, and Emmy-Award winning filmmaker. The critically acclaimed writer/producer/director is a graduate of the
conservatory program in filmmaking at the New York Film Academy. Dr. Akintunde is an Associate Professor and former Head of the Department of Black Studies at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and is well published in the areas of education, race, and diversity. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Music Education degrees from Alabama State University and the Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction and African American Studies from the University of Missouri.
He, along with DEIA Specialist, Michelle Troxclair, will be hosting a Seminar addressing the crippling psychological effects and impacts of race and gender in current society. An historical foray into the causes of these mythological impediments, stereotypes, role assignments, and perceptions will undoubtedly call into question the very notions of race and gender.
