Lawrence Ross, best-selling author of “Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses”, offers a blunt but entertaining lecture on the history of campus racism and how it manifests. America’s colleges have fostered a racist environment that makes them a hostile space for African American students. A bold mix of history and the current climate, Blackballed is a call to action for universities to make radical changes to their policies and standards to foster a better legacy for all students.
