Albany, Ga – Kathaleena Edward Monds, Professor of Business Information Systems and Co-Director of the Center for Economic Education/Small and Minority Entrepreneurship in the Albany State University College of Business presented a discussion surrounding The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas at Atlanta University Center’s (AUC) Young Black Thinkers Society. Monds’ presentation was held March 19, at Spelman College.
The event was hosted by AUC’s Young Black Thinkers Society and funded by a Charles Koch Foundation grant. According to Monds, the goal of the presentation was to engage undergraduates in thinking critically about their role as economic citizens and to dialogue about historical examples in which African-Americans held prominence in the economic arena.
The YBTS challenges participants on a range of discussion topics from identity to politics, and always incorporate philosophical concepts. The debates are conducted using the Socratic Method and are open to students, academics and the public.
Monds holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science from Spelman College, a M.S. degree in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Instructional Technology from Wayne State University located in Detroit, Michigan.
