Register here for From Chaos to Community: A Conversation with Dr. Eddie S. Glaude Jr. on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy, Our Racial Reckoning, and the Path Forward

Eddie Glaude Jr. Nationally respected scholar, commentator, and author Dr. Eddie Glaude will lead a discussion guided by his book, Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul, which explores the foundational perspectives set forth by Dr. King in his last book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community.
 
A Q&A with the author – moderated by Dr. Nyeema Watson (vice chancellor for diversity, inclusion, and civic engagement) – will follow the talk. Rutgers University–Camden Interim Chancellor Margaret Marsh will offer comments.
 
Dr. Glaude also is the author of the books In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America, and his most recent, the New York Times bestseller, Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own, which takes a wide look at Black communities, the difficulties of race in the United States, and the challenges we face as a democracy.
 
The James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor and chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton, Dr. Glaude frequently appears in the media, as a columnist for TIME Magazine and as an MSNBC contributor on programs like Morning Joe and Deadline: White House with Nicolle Wallace. He also hosts Princeton’s AAS podcast, a conversation around the field of African American Studies and the Black experience in the 21st century.
