Lawrence Ross, the author of “Blackballed: The Black and White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses,” will give a lecture and book signing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on Wednesday, Oct. 3. 

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. in the Donaghey Student Center Ledbetter Hall. The lecture, “Know Better Do Better” will begin at 7 p.m., followed by a book signing. Books will be available for purchase for the book signing after the lecture.

Ross’ presentatio non campus racism is a blunt, but entertaining, lecture on the history of campus racism and how it manifests. It challenges students, administrators, and faculty members to face the issue head on, and with an urgency that says it’s everyone’s responsibility to create an environment where every stakeholder is not just non-racist, but anti-racist.

The event is sponsored by the UA Little Rock Student Experience Center, Division of Student Affairs, and Anderson Institute on Race and Ethnicity.
