The goal of the Mark Q. Sawyer Memorial Lecture in Racial and Ethnic Politics is to highlight the outstanding research of an advanced assistant or associate professor whose research focuses on racial and ethnic politics in the United States and internationally.   We are excited to welcome Assistant Professor, Dr. Danielle Clealand from Florida International University-Department of Politics and International Relations, to present her new book, The Power of Race In Cuba: Racial Ideology & Black Consciousness During the Revolution (Oxford University Press)—Winner of the 2018 Best Book Award for the Race, Ethnicity and Politics Section of the American Political Science Association (APSA).

This lecture honors the legacy of Dr. Mark Q. Sawyer, UCLA Professor of African American Studies and Political Science from 1999-2017. His first book Racial Politics in Post-Revolutionary Cuba (2006), published by Cambridge University Press, received several book awards. Dr. Sawyer also published widely on race, ethnicity, politics, gender, immigration, and coalition politics in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and the United States.  Dr. Sawyer was a key institution builder at UCLA.  In 2006, he co-founded the field of Race, Ethnicity and Politics (REP) in the Department of Political Science and served as founding director of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Politics (CSREP).  As Chair of the Inter-departmental Program (IDP) in African American Studies from 2011 to December 2013, Dr. Sawyer drafted and shepherded the application that ultimately resulted in the establishment of the Department of African American Studies at UCLA.

    tems biography
    One of the best budget friendly phones that Nigerians like to opt for is the Tecno Pop 4. It is available in so many online and offline stores in Nigeria. Nice content by the way. Also here is a cool article about the biography of tems, a popular Nigerian singer in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

    Players can go on a nostalgia trip with Friday Night Funkin’. The gameplay is similar to that of retro rhythm games or puzzle games, making it an incredibly easy-to-play game. However, it is still very challenging to play as the songs can vary in rhythm and speed. Have fun!

    The garage is an integral part of a good residential building. Trouble-free operation of the garage door allows you to use the garage without any problems. But as soon as the garage door stops working, it brings a lot of problems to its owner. The main causes of a breakdown can be a malfunction of the garage electric drive or a bursting spring. In case of damage, replacement of the garage door panels is required. Where to find a contractor for these purposes? On the LocalProBook service, of course! On the service, you can easily find a contractor near you, his contacts and reviews. An alternative to an independent search is to leave an application for the repair or replacement of garage doors and receive several offers from contractors at once and choose the right one. And all this is absolutely free for both the owner of the house and the contractors.

    Epic Games may be focusing more attention on the upcoming new Fortnite game mode: Battle Royale as they prepare to start its company-wide testing. However, this does not necessarily mean that Funkin can not come to the Nintendo Switch in one way or another.
