Jamelle Bouie

07:30 pm - 11/16/2016

@ Cox Alumni Memorial Auditorium

University of Tennessee at Knoxville
Knoxville TN  37916



If 2016 has shown us anything, it’s that America has not solved questions about race relations that have existed since the founding of the country. Tensions are at a high in America today, with perhaps no issue being more of a lightning rod than that of policing. “Protect and serve” is a phrase that every police officer has emblazoned across their car and wants to live out, but minority communities feel persecuted and endangered instead of protected. The current system is broken and steps need to be taken to repair damages in communities across the country. How do we fix these problems together as a nation without entrenching divisions further?

On Wednesday, November 16th in Alumni Memorial Building’s Cox Auditorium at 7:30PM, Jamelle Bouie will come to speak about today’s civil rights movement and what can be done to ease racial tensions and create equality for all Americans. His speech will cover topics related to civil rights movements in the past and how they relate to the current situation in the United States today. Mr. Bouie is the Chief Political Correspondent for Slate Magazine, a regular contributor as a political analyst on CBS News, and one of Forbes’ 2015 “30 Under 30” members. Mr. Bouie is a rising voice on national politics and brings a candid, historical perspective on the past and how the past relates to the problems that the country faces today. A short meet and greet with Mr. Bouie will proceed the event.
