SOLD OUT: September 18 — Wesley Morris — KUER & United Way Speakers Series
Join KUER's RadioWest and the United Way of Salt Lake City on Wednesday, September 18 at 7 p.m. at the S.J. Quinney Law School for the second installment in our Equality is Not Enough: Building Equitable Communities Speakers Series. RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio will interview the film and culture critic-at-large for The New York Times, 1619 Project contributor, and Still Processing podcast host Wesley Morris.
About the Speakers Series:
We live in a world that is fundamentally inequitable. The question is, with so much work to be done to address rampant inequities, where do we begin? We can start by including more voices in the conversations. We can unpack and disrupt traditional ways of thinking. We can challenge institutions and devise new ways of viewing our world. And we can cultivate opportunities that enable all of us to thrive.
This year’s three-part Speaker Series includes scholar Geoffrey Canada (Aug 28), cultural critic Wesley Morris (Sept 18), and activist Brittany Packnett (Oct 23). Join us for three candid and focused discussions.
