Author, advocate and public policy expert Heather McGhee
May 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$10
Join UCSB Arts & Lectures as they present author, advocate and public policy expert Heather McGhee to discuss The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together on Tuesday, May 4 at 5 p.m. Pacific.
Heather McGhee’s specialty is the American economy – and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. She played a leadership role in steering the historic Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and was one of the key advocates credited for the adoption of the Volcker Rule. McGhee’s compassionate and deeply-stirring New York Times bestseller, The Sum of Us, reveals the devastating true cost of racism for everyone and offers an actionable roadmap during one of the most critical – and most troubled – periods in history.
This conversation with Dr. Sharon Tettegah, UC Santa Barbara professor and director of the Center for Black Studies Research, will be followed by a Q&A.
