An Evening with Clint Smith

This is a past event.

This event is part of the Cultural Lens Film & Speaker Series. 

Clint Smith is a staff writer at The Atlantic, host of the YouTube series Crash Course Black American History, and author of the recently released #1 New York Times Bestseller, How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America

Join us as we invite him to discuss the brutal history of the slave trade and how it has been deeply imprinted on today’s society whether it is in places we might drive by on our way to work, holidays such as Juneteenth, or entire neighborhoods.
