Sac State professor to deliver Carter G. Woodson
lecture: “Standing at the Crossroads”

Sacramento State Astronomy and Physics Professor Zolili Ndlela will deliver the annual Carter G. Woodson lecture “Standing at the Crossroads,” on Wednesday, Feb. 13, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the University Union’s Orchard Suite. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Ndlela says his talk will discuss the connections between his experiences as an educational professional and his social activism, how the connections have influenced him, and the insights they’ve provided. He will also touch on longstanding myths and fallacies about the roles and contributions of Africans and African-Americans in the sciences and the humanities.

Ndlela has been a member of Sacramento State’s Department of Physics and Astronomy since 1993, serving previously as a private consultant at NASA sites and the Fermi National Laboratory.  He earned his doctoral degree from Stanford University, where he researched solid state/condensed matter physics. His research specialties are experimental solid state physics, electronic transport measurements, and laser physics.

The Carter G. Woodson lecture is one of Sacramento State’s Black History Month events, and is sponsored by the University’s Cooper Woodson College. For more information, contact the college at (916) 278-5363. For media assistance, contact Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
