Description

California State University East Bay's Diversity, Leadership, and Employee Wellness unit is proud to host:

Tim Wise, an international speaker and Author of Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. Wise is a prominent anti-racist writer and educator. Join us as he examines the ways in which American politics and culture serve to rationalize inequalities on the basis of class and race. Wise will explore the importance of undermining the dominant white racial narrative in order to fight racism, economic and social injustice.

Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States. He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on academic conferences, and to community groups across the country. He is also the host of the new podcast, Speak Out with Tim Wise.

He has also lectured internationally, in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, entertainment, media, law enforcement, military, and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise has provided anti-racism training to educators and administrators nationwide.

Parking is available in Lots K, J and H.
