The Department of Black Studies is honored to be a campus partner with UCSB's Arts & Lectures "Race to Justice" Series. The programming is absolutely amazing!
Join us for a conversation with Allyson Felix and Dr. Ingrid Banks, Chair of UCSB’s Department of Black Studies, followed by a Q&A. The most decorated track and field Olympian in history, Allyson Felix is a nine-time Olympic medalist, six-time Olympic champion, world record holder and one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020. An outspoken critic of pregnancy discrimination in athletics, an advocate for underserved children and a proponent of maternity rights, Felix shares her experiences with racism and discrimination even as a professional athlete. As she gears up for the Tokyo Olympics, Felix remains at the forefront of the fight for equality for all – in sports and in life.
All of these events are free to UCSB students.
