Provost's Lecture Series featuring Ibram X. Kendi

Oregon State University invites you to a conversation with Ibram X. Kendi, Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University, and the founding director of the BU Center for Antiracist Research. He is a contributing writer at The Atlantic and a CBS News correspondent. Kendi is the 2020-2021 Frances B. Cashin Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.

He is the author of many books including Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for Nonfiction, and three #1 New York Times bestsellers, How to Be an Antiracist; Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, co-authored with Jason Reynolds; and Antiracist Baby, illustrated by Ashley Lukashevsky. His next book, Be Antiracist: A Journal for Awareness, Reflection, and Action, will be released in October.

The Provost’s Lecture Series is a partnership of the Office of the Provost and the OSU Foundation to bring renowned thinkers, artists, designers and leaders to OSU to engage the community on topics of global significance.

Please contact Andrea McDaniel in the Office of the Provost if you have any questions and for information regarding future Provost's Lectures.

I agree with the other commenter - I am extremely frustrated that I could not attend despite registering months in advance. OSU should have anticipated the popularity of the speaker and planned accordingly (and limited registration if the Zoom meeting had a set capacity!). I am very disappointed in OSU - there should have been better communication. A recording better be sent out to those who were blocked and could not enter the meeting.

How come with pre-registration there wasn't room to join the event? I'm very frustrated that we couldn't hear Dr Kendi's presentation.

You're not going yet!
