Please join Colby President David Greene, Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Tayo Clyburn, and Assistant Professor of Government Carrie LeVan for a conversation with Ibram X. Kendi, a bestselling author and leading scholar of race and racist policy in America. Please register here to join the discussion.
Kendi was recently named the director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University and will serve as the Frances B. Cashin Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for the Advanced Study at Harvard University this academic year. He is a National Book Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author, has published more than a dozen academic articles, delivered Congressional testimony, and been interviewed by a range of well-known personalities from Brian Williams to Oprah.
This event is a collaboration of the Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Center for Small Town Jewish Life, the Colby Museum of Art, the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, the Lunder Institute for American Art, the Oak Institute for Human Rights, and the Pugh Center. We are committed both individually and collectively to openly discuss and actively address racial inequities at Colby and beyond. We believe this joint collaboration is an important statement of unity and welcome all to participate.
