  Beyond 'The Wire' Why Poverty Endures in West Baltimore  
(Special Event)

Please join Dr. Patricia Fernandez-Kelly on her lecture on, "Beyond 'The Wire' Why Poverty Endures in West Baltimore".

Dr. Fernandez-Kelly will be speaking about poverty and the criminalization of African Americans in West Baltimore.In addition, Dr. Fernandez-Kelly's research on Baltimore honors the life and career of former Gloria D. Smith professor, Hayward "Woody" Farrar. Also, her ethnographic approach to documenting the lives of poor/working-class African Americans (published in her 2015 book, The Hero's Fight) offers an interesting parallel to Alice Goffman's On the Run -- a book that has received a great deal of attention from sociologists and ethnographers).

Sponsored by the Gloria D. Smith Professorship in conjunction with the Africana Studies and Women's and Gender Studies programs, and the Department of Sociology
