Guest Talk Speakers

Fran L. Lassiter is an Associate Professor of English at Montgomery County Community College (MC3). She received her Ph.D. in English from Temple University, with a specialization in African American literature and early slave narratives. Her research and teaching focus broadly on questions of gendered and racialized identities in literature, and Africanisms as a theoretical approach for the reclamation of understudied slave narratives. In 2008, she became the first Faculty Diversity Fellow at MC3. She has presented papers at various national conferences on Black women writers; the rhetoric of nineteenth-century African American activists; and her paper entitled, “Journey to Equality: From Maria W. Stewart to Barack Obama,” received the Northeast Modern Language Association’s CAITY Caucus Prize in 2010. In addition, her paper “From Toasts to Raps: New Approaches for Teaching the Harlem Renaissance” published in Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition, and Culture offers a cross-disciplinary approach for teaching literature of the period. Currently, she is completing a book on a free-Black family in Colonial-era Virginia. She is married and lives with her husband in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
