Professor Herman Beavers Featured in Article by Pennsylvania Humanities Council

Professor Herman Beavers, of Penn’s English and Africana Studies Departments, was recently featured in an article published on the Pennsylvania Humanities Council Website. The article is titled “Penn Professor Helps Veterans ‘Confront Their Demons’ In the City of Bones.” Professor Beavers spent an afternoon with Penn’s Veteran’s Upward Bound Program discussing August Wilson’s play “Gem of the Ocean.” The play is a dramatization of African American lives in the twentieth century.
