Race Matters @ 25 Conference & Celebration :: Dartmouth College

race matters posterRace Matters @ 25, a two-and-a-half day conference at Dartmouth this summer, will celebrate this 25th anniversary of Dr. Cornell West's book. It will bring together scholars and thought leaders with a variety of perspectives to think about the past and future of African-American and African diasporic studies at a crucial moment of debate and activism. The focus will be on unpacking historical legacies and discussing future lines of intellectual, social, cultural, and political engagement within the context of Race Matters and its continuing impact. 

In 1993, Dr. Cornel West published Race Matters, a book that became a national bestseller, selling more than half a million copies and earning widespread praise for its trenchant depiction of race in America, its unflinching critique of governmental and social policies around race issues, and its optimistic vision for race relations in the future. Newly republished in a 25th anniversary edition, with a new introduction by Dr. West, Race Matters is more than ever a book for our times. West’s prescient sense that “we are at a crucial crossroad in the history of this nation—and we either hang together by combatting these forces that divide and degrade us or we hang separately” could not be more relevant or more necessary in 2018.

More information and tickets are available at racematters25.

The bookstore will be on hand Saturday afternoon with copies of Race Matters and other books pertinent to the conference.
