  • Oct. 23: Author of ‘Blackballed’ to speak on racism, hostility on campuses

    October 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    WSU, CUB Auditorium

    Hostile campus environments and racism will be the topic of a speech by Lawrence Ross, the author of “Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses,” beginning 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, in the CUB Auditorium.

    The presentation, hosted by the National Pan-Hellenic Council at WSU, will be open to the public and will feature a Q & A session and book signing.

    Ross will speak on hostile campus environments and the lived experiences that students of color encounter as a result of micro and macroaggressions. His latest book, “Blackballed,” published by St. Martins Press, tackles historical and contemporary issues surrounding campus racism.

    Ross received a bachelor’s degree in history from UCLA, and a master of fine arts in screenwriting from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

    He also authored “The Divine Nine: The History of African American Fraternities,” and has written for CNN, The Grio, The Root, and USA Today.

    The event is sponsored in part by the Office of the President, Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs, the Black Student Union, YWCA of WSU, College of Education, Department of Sociology, Department of Critical Culture, Gender and Race Studies, and the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life.

    For additional information, contact the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life,
