Amanda Eke recently returned to the States from the University of Malta where she acted as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. through the Fulbright Fellowship. During her time in Malta, she developed novel curricula for the university’s English Department in spoken word and used spoken word and music to teach English to migrants and refugees. She has presented at Harvard College, University of California Davis, University of California Berkeley, and Purdue University. Some of her most notable lectures are: Freedom, Call it by Any Other Name: Black Utopias in Music; Black Women in Classical Music; What a Time to be Alive: The Inundation of Social Media on Activism; The New Millennium of Black Women in Contemporary Music; To Be Young Gifted and Black: A Look at the Visionary Activism by Black Female Musicians; and Black Musicianship: A Look at the Cost of Black Womanhood in Music.
Her free spoken word poetry performance will take place in Dancers Workshop Studio 1 on Friday, October 18 starting at 7PM.
