PRESENTING DR. IBRAM KENDI (Awarding winning author)

Back to all events

Warshof Conference Center; Monroe A/B
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The PRISM Multicultural Center along with the Office of Student Life and Leadership Development and Visiting Scholars, would like to invite you to attend the presentation with Dr. Ibram Kendi, as part of our diversity series.  The hard conversations continue to be in the forefront of most people’s minds but hardly ever communicated with each other in respectful and meaningful ways.

 We invite the college and community to attend this important talk with Dr. Kendi.  Dr. Kendi’s research awakens us to the reality that contrary to popular conceptions, racist ideas did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Instead, they were devised and honed by some of the most brilliant minds of each era. These intellectuals used their brilliance to justify and rationalize deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and the nation’s racial disparities in everything from wealth to health. While racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can be discredited. In shedding much-needed light on the murky history of racist ideas, Stamped from the Beginning offers us the tools we need to expose them—and in the process, gives us reason to hope.
