Equity in Modern America
WHERE: Basile Theatre at the Historic Athenaeum
WHEN: Thursday, March 28th, 2019 7:30pm
What do we mean when we use the word “equity”? How do we build an equitable society? Join us for a conversation with Jelani Cobb, Negin Farsad, and Jeff Chang about Equity in Modern America.
Jeff Chang is author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation and We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation.
Jelani Cobb is author of The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress, The Devil and Dave Chappelle, and To the Break of Dawn: A Freestyle on the Hip Hop Aesthetic.
Negin Farsad is author of How to Make White People Laugh and director of The Muslims are Coming!
This event is part of the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute’s Entanglements Series which puts scientists, social scientists, humanists, and artists in conversation with the audience to ask questions that transcend disciplinary boundaries.
Equity in Modern America is presented with the Kheprw Institute, the Central Indiana Community Foundation, Indiana Humanities, the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, and the IUPUI Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Support for this event comes from the Indiana University New Frontiers in the Arts and Humanities grant program.
