ArtsEmerson: Public Dialogues

WED, NOV 4 @ 7PM Paramount TheatreInterrogating Whiteness (Part 1)Moderated by Future Boston AllianceFeaturing Walter Mosley, American novelist and recipient of the PEN America’s Lifetime Achievement AwardAfter the death of Trayvon Martin, Walter Mosley wrote in Newsweek, “If we can see this injustice as the underpinning for a systemic transformation in which we might truly open up the media and investigate our racial, cultural, and economic assumptions, then we will have crossed that great divide from the sexist, classist, and racist 20th century into a world where young men like Martin aren’t in danger from the fear foisted upon us by the very systems that now pretend to seek justice.” Join us as Mr. Mosley expands these ideas and interrogates the notion of Whiteness. The speech will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
