About this Event
Author, political analyst, and Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson will speak on racial profiling and then take questions during a virtual event.
The talk is the fourth in the series Difficult Conversations as a Catalyst for Change, presented by Donald Hall, the University’s Robert L. and Mary Sproull Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences & Engineering.
Dyson previously was scheduled to speak on campus last March, but the event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His talk is titled “In Caricature: Racial Profiling and Its Impact on Black America.” Dyson will speak for 45 minutes and take questions from Hall for 30.
Dyson has authored or edited more than 20 books on race and race relations in the United States, and on figures including Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama, Bill Cosby, Marvin Gaye, Jay Z, and Tupac Shakur. He is also a New York Times contributing opinion writer and has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, National Public Radio, and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.
