Clifford Thompson - What It Is: Race, Family, and One Thinking Black Man's Blues

Upcoming Event
Friday, January 3, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

An award-winning journalist, essayist, and professor, Thompson grew up in D.C., where he absorbed both the lessons of racism and the ideal of equality. Jolted by Trump’s election and the surge of white elitism, Thompson questioned his sense of his nation—and his own values—as never before. In an eloquent exploration and analysis of the state of the country today, Thompson interweaves his own unsettling experiences, the wisdom of writers such as James Baldwin, Albert Murray, and Joan Didion, and, most of all, stories from a variety of people, including Trump supporters, community organizers, and the founder of the National African American Gun Association.
