The Department of African American Studies welcomes visiting lecturer Kelli Morgan to speak on the topic of Black Artists: Past, Present and Future.

Recently named the inaugural recipient of The Winston & Carolyn Lowe Curatorial Fellowship for Diversity in the Fine Arts at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Kelli Morgan is a WSU alum, having earned her Bachelor of Arts in African American Studies in 2006. A diligent scholar whose career is committed to creating stimulating and culturally sensitive educational opportunities for students and public audiences alike, Morgan’s curatorial work concentrates on African American visual culture, using the museum gallery to examine the ways in which people construct visual discourses, conceptualize images, and sometimes resist these discourses.
