White House's Black History Month Panel with Kaye Whitehead

Dr. Kaye Whitehead, LLC graduate, was one of four historians chosen nationwide to speak at the White House's Black History Month Panel.

Dr. Whitehead stated that

"My interdisciplinary training in black women's history, historical sociolinguistics, history, and education prepared me with the knowledge I needed to speak about a range of topics (from the Emancipation Proclamation to Health Care to the 'Classroom to Prison Pipeline'). I truly believe that I am very well-trained scholar and though I may not know everything, I do know how to conduct research and find the information that I need".
