The Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) Office of Diversity, Equity, and Poverty Programs would like to invite you to attend our Speaker Series featuring Dr. Ricky L. Jones. This month's topic will be «Curriculum For Whom: Whose Lie Is It Anyway?»
Raised by his grandmother in Atlanta's Carver Homes housing project, Ricky L. Jones not only became the first member of his immediate family to graduate high school, but by age 28 he also earned a Ph.D. Currently, he is Professor and Chair of the University of Louisville's Department of Pan-African Studies. Jones was educated as an undergraduate at the United States Naval Academy and Morehouse College. He was only the second African American to receive a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Kentucky where he specialized in Political Philosophy and Comparative Politics.
