UCSB SOCIOLOGIST TO DISCUSS BOOK ON BLACK SPIRITUALS

Cruz examines the significance of this phenomena in his recently published book Culture on the Margins: The Black Spiritual and the Rise of American Cultural Interpretation (Princeton University Press).

Cruz will talk about his book and sign copies at an event celebrating his work at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21 at the McCune Conference Room in UCSB's Humanities and Social Building.
