May 20, 2018 ~ Michael Eric Dyson


Deemed “a street fighter in a suit and tie,” Michael Eric Dyson takes on the toughest and most controversial issues of the day, including race, politics and pop culture, with his fearless and fiery rhetoric.Dyson bridges gaps between generations, connecting civil rights identity to hip-hop culture, while forging links between older and younger Americans, especially African Americans. He has risen from welfare father to Princeton Ph.D. and from a factory worker who didn’t begin college until he was 21 to “the ideal public intellectual of our time” according to Naomi Wolf.
