University of Minnesota's Institute of Advanced Study, University Honors Program Presents: Carol Anderson

Since 1865 and the passage of the 13th Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances toward full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. In this presentation, Anderson will discuss her New York Times bestselling book that carefully links historical flashpoints when social progress for African Americans was countered by deliberate and cleverly crafted opposition. Her work pulls back the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, rendering visible the long lineage of white rage. This timely discussion adds an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America. Learn more about Carol Anderson in this MPR story.


This event is part of the 1968/69-2018/19: Historic Upheavals, Enduring Aftershocks Series

National Book Foundation Presents: Building a More Equitable World: Carol Anderson and Ibram X. Kendi

  • Montgomery City-County Public Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Following the election of Barack Obama, many claimed that we were living in a post-racial society. But in the era of Black Lives Matter, Charlottesville protests, and intensified culture wars, it’s apparent that we have a long way to go toward a just world. How do authors write about race during these times? How do art and culture offer powerful tools to help us to engage audiences around racial equity and justice? Join 2018 NBA Nonfiction Longlister Carol Anderson (One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy) and 2016 NBA Nonfiction Winner Ibram X. Kendi (Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America) for an enlightening evening on how the power of art can inform and transform cultural narratives.
