Lawrence Ross, best selling author of “Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses”, offers a blunt, but entertaining, virtual 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. Blackballed evaluates the white fraternity and sorority system, universities who name campus buildings after racists, and anti-affirmative action policies that effectively segregate predominately white universities and provide ample room for white privilege. 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.
