Event Description

"All are warmly invited to a free reading and discussion. Hear how 25 students were inspired to write a book on Black Lives Matter. Hear the conclusions of the editors on the causes and solutions to the problems that confront African people throughout the Diaspora." - H.F. 

  Halford H. Fairchild, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus at Pitzer college, challenged his Introduction to African American Psychology class to co-author Black Lives Matter: Lifespan Perspectives. This book represents a revolution in higher education.  Instead of testing students on Euro-centric mis-information, Fairchild taught his students how to be producers of knowledge.  Fairchild included more than two dozen of his previously published essays, including Redefining Excellence in Higher Education and How Universities Rip Off Black Students and Black People.  Fairchild will discuss the crafting of this book, present selected readings, and perform his spoken word piece, The Problem of the 21st Century.
