Event Description:

AFRICANA STUDIES and the DEPARTMENT of ANTHROPOLOGY PRESENTS the Distinguished Anthropologist EVAN T. PRITCHARD at JOHN JAY COLLEGE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE MONDAY, OCTOBER 15th 2018 at 1:30 P.M.

Last Spring, Evan T. Pritchard was sponsored at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian in NYC. Angeline Butler, Adjunct Professor of John Jay College and original organizer of the Student Nonviolent Movement of the 1960’s and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee ((SNCC) was in his audience. When Pritchard spoke about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mohandis Gandhi and their influence by THE HERON, a philosophical practice of Nonviolence originating among the Native Americans, I felt I had to invite him to John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He, also, knew and had a relationship with Dr. Bernard Lafayette, who has built several Nonviolent Institutes at Emory University and the University of Rhode Island and is, also, an original founding member of SNCC, originating out of the Nashville Student Nonviolent Central Committee.   Muriel Tillinghast, an original organizer of the Mississippi Summer 1964, COFO Worker with SNCC was one of the sponsors of Pritchard at the Smithsonian with the Ethical Cultural Society of New York . Then, I discovered that Mr. Pritchard had written about 30 books in his life, among them “Native New Yorkers” and “No Word In Time” and now the new, self-published and only book written on “The Tappan” of New York.  We are honored to have this wonderful Anthropologist, Educator, Author, Producer, Founder of Neetopk Keetopk (My Friends, Your Friends, Sharing the River of Life) and a Musician in his own right come to John Jay College to speak on "The Native American and the African American Connection: Multiracial Cooperation."
