Lawrence Ross: Know Better Do Better - College, Racism, & YOU

07:00 pm - 02/10/2016

@ Cox Alumni Memorial Auditorium

University of Tennessee at Knoxville
Knoxville TN  37916



The University of Tennessee proudly presents Lawrence Ross, author of "Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America's Campuses" on February 10 at 7pm in Cox Auditorium. This event is FREE and open to the public!

Lawrence will present a Blackballed lecture titled: "KNOW BETTER, DO BETTER: College, Racism, and YOU", and it centers on informing students about the history of campus racism, how to prevent it, and what they can do about it. The KNOW BETTER, DO BETTER lecture is blunt, challenging, entertaining, and even funny at times. Students will be encouraged to critically think about racism as they see it, and buy into the idea that regardless of their political views, a racist free campus should be the desire of everyone. #UTKKBDB
