Nikole Hannah-Jones: The Legacy of 1619 and Racial Justice Today
Wellesley welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and MacArthur Fellow Nikole Hannah-Jones to speak about the legacy of slavery in the United States and the need for racial justice today. Her lecture, to be delivered remotely, will serve as both the Betsy Wood Knapp ’64 Lecture in the Social Sciences and the Wilson Lecture, two of the College’s premier academic lectures.
Following an introduction by President Paula A. Johnson, Hannah-Jones will join Michael Jeffries, dean of academic affairs, for a moderated discussion. This event is part of #WellesleyVotes.
Free and open to Wellesley College students, faculty, and staff only. Please pre-register for the event.
