Don't Forget IBRAN KENDI
PRESENTING NOTED AUTHOR AND WINNER OF THE 2016 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD
If you have not yet, please consider attending this "well timed" event with our special guest Dr. Ibram Kendi. Dr. Kendi's latest book "Stamped from the Beginning" will provoke thought and serious conversations that are crucial considering the times we live in. Every teaching faculty, every administrator and every student should consider coming to hear Dr. Kendi.
Stamped from the Beginning turns our ideas of the term "racism" upside-down. Ibram X. Kendi writes as a thoughtful cultural historian, aware that he is challenging deeply held, often-progressive assumptions. Using a masterful voyage through the history of the U.S. political rhetoric, beginning with Cotton Mather and ending with hip-hop, he argues that even the most fervent anti-racists have been infected with that resilient virus. With his learning, he dares us to find a cure. "
Faculty, inform your students of this event, better yet bring your class.
Students' education is power, and you owe yourselves to be well informed.
