Guest Lecturer: Khalil Gibran Muhammad

Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad is the director of the Schomburg Center for Research on Black Culture of the New York Public Library. His book, The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, discusses the emergence of the deeply embedded notions of black people as a dangerous race of criminals in contrast to working-class whites and European immigrants. Muhammad will also be speaking at 3 p.m. at an informal book discussion prior to his keynote address.

Dr. Thomas King is an author who often writes and also advocates for First Nation causes. His book, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account, is an unconventional assessment of Indian-White relations in North America. This book is featured in our book club this year. King is also Professor Emeritus from the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. He earned his bachelor and masters degrees from Chico State University and earned his Ph.D. in English from the University of Utah.
