A Black's Intellectual's Odyssey: a memoir

Wednesday, February 97:00—8:00 PMVirtual

Martin Kilson was an American political scientist and the first black academic to be appointed a full professor at Harvard College. In A Black Intellectual's Odyssey, Kilson takes readers on a fascinating journey from his upbringing in the small Pennsylvania milltown of Ambler and the racist margins of twentieth-century America to one of the nation's most prestigious institutions. For over 40 years, the Kilsons hosted many Harvard students, professors and visiting scholars at their home in Lexington. Join Marion Kilson and Marc Saint Louis, for a deep dive into the life and accomplishments of the late Martin Kilson.
