6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Join President Cristle Collins Judd for a conversation with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, author, sociology professor, a New York Times contributing opinion writer, and a contributing editor of The New Republic, and of ESPN's The Undefeated website. Dr. Dyson’s 2017 book, “The Tears We Cannot Stop,” has been lauded by the “The New York Times Book Review” as “One of the most frank and searing discussions on race ... a deeply serious, urgent book…” As the country grapples with racist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, Dr. Dyson’s voice soars above the rest with conviction and compassion. In his 2016 “New York Times” op-ed piece "Death in Black and White," and in “Tears We Cannot Stop,” Dr. Dyson makes a provocative and deeply personal call for change. He argues that if we are to make real racial progress we must face difficult truths, including being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed, or discounted.
