The Department of Black Studies is proud to be a Campus Partner with UCSB’s Arts & Lectures in presenting "JUSTICE FOR ALL" - a series that confronts the inequalities that shape our policies, our institutions and our lives. Our collective awakening demands a just, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world, one which frees us to thrive. In this series public figures, organizers, thinkers and doers expose deeply embedded injustices and call for a more equitable future. The full, current event series can be found at https://artsandlectures.ucsb.edu/Series.aspx?id=261
Join us for the second event of the series with Harvard professor Annette Gordon-Reed. A leading voice on race and history in America, Dr. Reed received a Pulitzer Prize for her book The Hemingses of Monticello and has been honored with a National Humanities Medal. Gordon-Reed’s new bestseller, On Juneteenth, weaves together history and heartfelt memoir to tell the sweeping story of Juneteenth and the larger fight for equality.
