Afterwords, attendees can interact with Mr. Ross as well as purchase his latest book and have it autographed.

Mr. Ross' Blackballed: Know Better, Do Better lecture will speak on college campus environments and students of color’s lived experiences. Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on Americas Campuses, his most recent book, is the CTLT's faculty spring reading group choice, with 64 participants discussing it this semester. The book tackles the historical and contemporary issues surrounding campus racism. What are the roots of campus racism? More importantly, how are we addressing it?
