Hate and bias are persistent global problems. What does it look like to engage in courageous conversations that speak to these difficult realities across personal, political, and historical frames? This year’s College Arts and Humanities (ARHU) Dean’s Lecture Series (DLS) is an opportunity for the campus to join together for provocative conversations about these issues across disciplines.

Join ARHU for the first conversation in this DLS series focused on 'The Personal' with slam poet and social justice advocate, Theo Wilson (@Lucifury).

Wilson, an award-winning slam poet and social justice advocate who skyrocketed to social media fame after posting beliefs about hate and bias, will discuss his experience as a black man who went undercover in 'alt-right' social media communities.

Admission is free, but tickets are required.
