BLACKBALLED: THE BLACK AND WHITE OF RACE ON AMERICA’S CAMPUSES
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 | 7:00pm -- Monroe Hall 130
The Blackballed KNOW BETTER/DO BETTER Campus Racism Lecture: This is not your ordinary lecture on racism. Frank, blunt, but somehow entertaining, Lawrence Ross' lecture on campus racism is based on his new book, Blackballed: The Black & White Politics of Race on America's Campuses. Ross breaks down not just the overt racism that occurs on college campuses almost daily, but their true roots. Are college campuses utopian spaces devoted to critical thought, or are they afflicted with the same issues as American society? That's the question Ross will answer in his lecture. And he guarantees that once you know better about campus racism, you'll do better when it comes to helping eliminate it.
