    Thursday, April 13, 2017.  8:30 am

    Location:

    Kellogg Center, 219 S. Harrison Rd, East Lansing, MI, 48824

    Description:

    The tenth biennial Race in 21st Century America conference is FREE to attend and it brings to campus leading scholars, community activists, public officials and residents, representing racial, ethnic, gender and ideological diversity, to participate in an important conversation with the MSU community about the problem of race in America. Though the conference will cover a number of areas, our theme this year is Race, Gender and Sexuality. The race conference, as we call it, is fundamentally designed to examine systems of power and privilege in the United States, especially the ways in which they impact communities of color. We also identify specific goals and strategies that promote democratic, yet radically transformative, social, economic and political structures…Our project is not simply about identifying and examining problems, but especially proposing actionable recommendations for addressing twenty-first century challenges.

  • World View Lecture Series: Ta-Nehisi Coates (April 2017)

    Dates:

    April 3, 2017.  6:30 pm.

    Location:

    Wharton Center, Cobb Great Hall, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI 48825

    Description:

    Over the last few years, Ta-Nehisi Coates has established himself as one of America’s finest intellectuals, a writer whose essays are so powerful and rigorously researched that he has forced many discussions on issues that would otherwise be ignored. His 2014 extended Atlantic essay, “The Case for Reparations,” stands as one of the most brilliant exposés of recent history. He is also the author of two memoirs, The Beautiful Struggle and Between the World and Me, which are both brilliantly conceived. Coates continues the discussion on racism prompted by MSU’s Project 60/50 and One Book One Community. A special chance to see this in-demand author in a rare speaking engagement.
