Linguistic researcher Anne H. Charity Hudley will discuss the inseparable distinction between language and race during a Friedman Family Fund Diversity Lecture titled "The Racialization of African-American English: Insights from Linguistics & Psychology." Hudley will draw from her work to discuss how social psycholinguistic work can empower African-Americans' self concepts, give insight into persistent issues of internalized racism and share how the study of race and language can contribute to applied research. A professor at the College of William and Mary, Hudley is the author of two books and her research has appeared in several publications. Hosted by the Department of Cognitive, Linguistic and Psychological Sciences, the event begins at 4 p.m. in the Metcalf Research Building, Friedman Auditorium, 190 Thayer St.
