Lora M. Robins Speaker Series presents Nikole Hannah-Jones
November 17 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am| $50
The final session of this year’s series
EQUITY: FROM CONCEPT TO ACTION
Join us as we explore equity, what it means, how it affects us and most importantly, how we can implement practices that yield thriving communities.
Community leaders have the desire and charge to increase opportunities for families and children, yet often efforts are dampened by systemic inequities based on race, gender and economic status. These are not issues of the past.
This year the Lora M. Robins Speaker Series will present three nationally known thought leaders who will share their perspectives on the persistence and widening of racial and class inequities in education, the workplace, and throughout society. Join us in moving from aspirational ideas to ACTION.
NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES / THE PROBLEM WE ALL LIVE WITH
Best known as the lead writer on the New York Times’ major multimedia initiative, The 1619 Project, Nikole Hannah-Jones is currently working on her first book addressing school re-segregation titled The Problem We All Live With. She has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created – and maintains – racial segregation in housing and schools. In this session, Jones will share learnings from her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America and offer a perspective for greater equity.
