Hi Danielle: it was great to see you at SPEP! Thanks for your participation in our SPEP panel discussion.

We hope that you find this site to be useful to your work; we depend on our members to make it a lively site. We are also planning some conferences and/or workshops in the next year or two for our members. We encourage you to expand your own profile page and post about your work as well as to contribute both to the general forum discussions and various affinity groups. Sharon

I received this message through an email forward and wanted to pass it on:

As you have perhaps already heard, Howard University, the only HBCU—out of 105—to have a BA and MA program in Philosophy, has announced plans to eliminate its Philosophy Department. I personally believe that this would be a staggering blow to Africana Philosophy. Given the Philosophy Department at Howard University’s almost century-long tradition, its elimination would send the wrong message to the Black community and deny opportunities for many students to pursue academic philosophy.

I am respectfully asking you to contact Howard University’s president (perhaps not only you, but other interested members in your department) to convey your thoughts concerning this strategic loss:

Dr. Sidney A. Ribeau, President
Howard University
2400 6th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20059

Email: Sidney.ribeau@howard.edu

The students in the philosophy department have set up a web site “Save Philosophy at Howard” http://savehowardphilosophy.wordpress.com/ where more information is available. Dr. Ribeau will announce his final decision on December 1, 2010, so if you could write your letter in the next two weeks, it would be greatly appreciated.
