Closing Keynote: Race Matters...In Education

Sunday February 11, 2018
3:00 - 4:00 PM
Terrace Ballroom

First published in 1993, Professor Cornel West's seminal text, Race Matters, was a national best-seller, and it has since become a classic on race in America. The insights Professor West brings to our complicated race problems remain fresh, exciting, creative, and compassionate. Now more than ever, with a new introduction, Race Matters is a book that also informs us on the ways in which the mechanism of structural racism can affect every facet of society in America...yes, even our educational institutions. With his mind trained on justice and his heart on hope, Professor West will underscore the importance of viewing justice, hope, and love as societal imperatives to ensure that our youth are granted the liberty to learn.
