Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On the Fox television drama “Lie to Me,” the actor Tim Roth played a criminal investigator who could quickly determine whether a person was telling the truth or not.  All he had to do was look at a suspect to decode the microexpressions that rippled across his or her face.

It might sound a bit more like fiction than science, but Dr. Erika Rosenberg, a psychologist and facial expression expert, knows just how accurate these little facial cues can be. She teaches courses on facial action coding systems (FACS), which instructs individuals on how to read the creased foreheads or trembling lips of the person sitting across from them. «Read the rest of this article»

African American Cultural Center at APSU to celebrate 20-year anniversary

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Nearly two decades ago, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center opened at Austin Peay State University, with the author of “Roots,” Alex Haley, speaking as part of opening ceremonies.

At that time, in early 1991, the African American Cultural Center (AACC) was the answer to the frequently expressed wish among many on campus to have a special place for African-American students and faculty to focus on their contributions to the culture and heritage in the U.S.

That is still the case today, 20 years later. Although the center was operational in 1991, it did not bear its official name until November 1992, when it was named in honor of Daniel, the first black student to enroll at the former Austin Peay State College when the institution was still an all-white school. For the college, the end of segregation ended in 1956 when Daniel applied to the graduate school and was admitted. He received a Master of Arts in Education in 1957.
