The U.S Embassy to Belgium and the U.S Mission to the European Union celebrated Black History Month in Brussels by hosting a lively discussion including panelist David Goldfield, the Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at UNC Charlotte. With other distinguished guests, Goldfield discussed the history of Black History Month as well as its relevance in today’s society.
Goldfield has served as an expert witness in voting rights cases, consulted for history museums, and works as an academic specialist for the U.S. State Department, leading seminars and workshops abroad on various aspects of American political culture and providing historical context for contemporary elections.
