This builds off of last semester’s ‘Democracy, Civility and Freedom of Expression’ series, which was a success, and of course, continues the ongoing, and much needed conversation on racial justice in America.
The opening event will feature author Ibram X. Kendi, who will participate in a conversation moderated by Full Steam Ahead guest Dr. John Gates, focusing on racial inequalities and how to be anti-racist, among other topics. The full schedule in the series can be found here.
On the latest episode of Full Steam Ahead: A Podcast About Purdue, CBS4’s Adam Bartels talks with Dr. Gates about the upcoming series – its goals, importance, hope for progress, and more.
Check out Dr. Gates’ previous appearances on the podcast here:
Episode 57 – Race relations, Black Lives Matter, and racial reconciliation
Episode 38 – Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King
