Tuesday, March 24, 2009
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Library 101 Multimedia viewing room
Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and activists in the country, and has visited over 400 college campuses, including Harvard, Stanford and the Law Schools at Yale. In addition to authoring two books (White Like Me: Reflections from a Privileged Son and Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White) and too many essays to list, he’s also trained teachers, government, media and law enforcement officials on methods for dismantling racisms in their institutions.
In this special seminar for faculty, join us to:
- develop a concrete sense of what it means to live diversity
- develop action-steps to capture this commitment to diversity
- leave with ways to continue the dialogue begun with this event
Breakfast will launch us off; and we'll end with lunch together.
