The Wayne State University School of Social Work and Office of Continuing Education are proud to host David J. Pate Jr., PhD as the keynote speaker in the third and final lecture of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series. Pate will be presenting Do Black Men deserve the American dream? The Impact of Gendered Deservingness on economic security for marginalized families."

An expert on low-income African-American men, fatherhood, and child support, Pate studies how Black men are affected by the social welfare system and the challenges that impede their ability to attain economic security. His research projects involve the use of qualitative research methods to examine life course events of African-American men and boys.

Pate is the Chair and Associate Professor of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, Department of Social Work and an Affiliated Associate Professor in the Department of African and African Diaspora Studies and University Honors College as well as an Affiliated Associate Professor at the Institute for Research on Poverty (UW-Madison). 

OPENING PERFORMANCE: The Spirit of Community scholarship is a memorial tribute for Lucile Myers, whose life resonated with a love of music and people. It provides financial assistance to clarinetists participating in programs of the Digital Clarinet Academy and includes a requirement for them to share their talents with others through educational and musical performances. The Wayne State University School of Social Work is proud to support the Spirit of Community scholarship recipients, Julianne Eidle and Emory Freeman, who will be opening the event with movements 1 and 3 (no piano) from Valarie Coleman's 'Portraits of Langston'.
