Lecture on the "Obama Phenomenon" in Recife, Brazil

John H. Stanfield, II, Ph.D.

According to the Maurício de Nassau University website: "Before he announced his bid for the White House, Senator Barack Obama was already making news on the domestic and world scenes. His popularity in the US, as well as the ethnic question, are key factors in giving him a good chance of winning the presidency. If elected, Obama will become the first black president in the political history of the United States."

To discuss this phenomenon, the Maurício de Nassau Institute is hosting a lecture on the subject on June 19 featuring diplomat Kathy Bentley, from the US Consulate in Recife, Brazil, and Professor John H. Stanfield, II, the Director of the Research Program on Transcultural and Intercultural Philanthropic Studies housed in the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Indiana, Bloomington. The lecture will be held at the Capunga block auditorium. Admission is free of charge.
