About the lecture

During her lecture, Soledad O’Brien will focus on disrupting and dismantling systemic racism by sharing voices and perspectives that often go unheard. Throughout, she will bring the challenges of equality and justice into full view where they can be confronted and addressed. She will bring powerful, real world insights in selected U.S. cities where efforts are underway to reform policing, incarceration, education, land ownership and more. Ms. O’Brien aims to leave audiences with a new understanding of how each of us can better understand and assist in dismantling systemic racism.

The public is invited to pre-submit questions to sli.do using the code #2022MLK.

This event is sponsored by various departments in CMU including Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer, and Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion.
