Thurs, Dec 3 – Dr. Eddie Glaude Jr — Racial Justice and the Election
December 3, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Incidents of police violence in 2020 sparked flashpoints in American society around the question of systemic racism, with widespread changes in levels of consciousness, a revival of civil disobedience, and renewed discussion of a racial reckoning in the United States. Dr. Eddie Glaude Jr., chair of the Center for African American Studies and the Department of African American Studies, will bring his thoughtful perspective to our Club’s members and guests for a talk and discussion. The WNDC is honored to host Dr. Glaude in addressing the issues facing the nation including racial reckoning, the relevance of James Baldwin’s lived experience as a Black, gay poet, author, and political figure, and reflecting on and about how America is continuing to live “the lie.”
Dr. Glaude is the author of many books including, Exodus!: Religion, Race and Nation in Early Nineteenth-Century Black America and recently, Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own. He also appears frequently on television, including “Morning Joe” and “Deadline White House” with Nicolle Wallace. On Sundays, he can often be found on “Meet the Press.” At Stanhope Hall at Princeton University, he hosts the podcast “AAS.”
