Opening Thursday, September 24th, from 7PM - 8PM
Many white Americans are ill-equipped, unpracticed, and uncomfortable talking about race. In her new book Just Us: An American Conversation, award-winning author Claudia Rankine urges her readers to break this cultural silence around race, thereby making visible the history of whiteness. She offers an imperative: we must forge restorative justice by finding the courage to acknowledge, challenge, and speak about white privilege and supremacy. Rankine welcomes you to join the conversation with CHF.
This annual lecture is presented in honor of Esther S. Saks on her 90th birthday and in celebration of her lifetime commitment to culture and curiosity, and is presented in partnership with Leadership Greater Chicago.
