Description

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black & White

The Washington Post has called Kareem Abdul-Jabbar “a vital, dynamic and unorthodox cultural voice.” In this thought-provoking keynote Kareem takes on the issues that are deeply dividing America: racism, economic inequality, social injustice, the power of the media and more. Speaking from the heart and calling upon his personal experiences as an African-American and Muslim, he focuses on the solutions that could unite us and inspires younger generations to continue the path towards change. “They need a road map of what’s possible—and how to get there,” he has said. In this his inspiring presentation, Kareem provides a blueprint for positive action.

Advance registration is encouraged so that we may plan for seating. Doors will open at 6:00 pm tot he Robert B. Goergen Athletic Center, Louis A. Alexander Palestra.
