Color of Education 2019 will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Raleigh Convention Center. This annual summit brings together educators, policymakers, nonprofit leaders, researchers, students, parents, philanthropists, and community members for a convening focused on race, equity and education in North Carolina.

Award-winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates will headline the event as its closing keynote speaker. Coates will be reading from his forthcoming book and first novel The Water Dancer slated for release at the end of September. In addition to the reading and a Q&A with the audience, Coates will be joined on stage for an in-conversation with Dr. William “Sandy” Darity, Samuel DuBois Cook Professor of Public Policy at Duke University, about race in America. Each ticket purchase will include a free copy of Coates' first novel The Water Dancer.

This year’s conference is sponsored in part by the Grable Foundation. For more info follow #ColorOfEducation on Twitter and visit our web site at http://colorofeducation.org.
