The Office of Greek Life, Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs, and the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies will be hosting Mr. Lawrence Ross as a guest lecturer. Ross is the author of several books about African American culture – namely The Divine Nine: History of African American Fraternities and Sororities – and he will be coming to the University of Michigan to discuss the research found in his new book Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on Americas Campuses. This interactive and multimedia lecture will bring light to commentary about campus race relations across America, as told by the experiences of students of color at several predominant institutions.
The event will take place on Monday, February 15, 2016 at 7pm in the Michigan League Ballroom. It is FREE and open to the public! Copies of his book will be sold and autographed after the lecture. It is also an official part of the University of Michigan MLK Symposium.
