  2. Hi there. I am hoping you might share an event that we originally planned to hold during Black History Month. We just couldn’t get a venue to work during February so we decided to continue the celebration into March! The event is FREE and open to EVERYONE.

    SFU History Reads-A Public Book Club

    In the 1950s, Elaine Mokhtefi travelled from the U.S. to France and first encountered the community of Algerian activists seeking an end to French imperialism in their homeland. In 1962, she moved to Algiers, the capital of the newly-independent Algerian Republic. By the late 1960s, she began working with the International Section of the Black Panther Party. Over several years, Mokhtefi met many of the figures who flocked to the “Mecca of revolutions” that Algeria had become. Algiers, Third World Capital (Verso Books, 2018) is her fascinating memoir.

    The SFU Department of History, the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies, the School for International Studies, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and the SFU Woodward’s Office of Community Engagement invite you to an afternoon discussion of this exciting new book. All readers within and beyond the university are welcome!
