Zoom Q&A with Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad: 1619 Project

Thursday, October 7th, 6 pm (EDT)
Thursday, October 7, at 6:00 pm EST Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, the author of The 1619 Project’s essay on the barbaric history of sugar production in America, will be joining EDS at Union on the evening of October 7, 2021. Widely known as one of the most influential authorities on racial justice in America, Muhammad is redefining our understanding of diversity, with his work featured in the likes of the New York Times’ landmark 1619 Project, and Ava DuVernay’s 13th. As Harvard Kennedy School Professor of History, Race, and Public Policy, he explains how “bias education”—race education—can help individuals and institutions reconcile the past within the present, and move towards greater equity, together.
