About the Event
Prolific political analyst (MSNBC, NPR, CNN) and author Michael Eric Dyson is one of the country’s premier public intellectuals. His seminal work on race in America has earned him comparisons to James Baldwin (in The New York Times) and praise from Toni Morrison (“a guidance for moral redemption”) and Stephen King (“Dyson tells you what you need to know—what this white man needed to know, at least”). Whether talking about the cultural relevance of Jay-Z or critiquing the politics of race in the Obama administration, Dyson is an electrifying and urgently necessary voice.
