COVID-19 Response and Reopening

A Conversation with Jelani Cobb

Tuesday, 2/2/2021 from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Virtual Gathering

COCC students are invited to join in on an informal virtual conversation and Q & A with acclaimed historian and journalist Jelani Cobb before his public presentation. Cobb speaks and writes about Black Lives Matter and activism, the battle zones of Ferguson or Baltimore, the legacy of a black presidency, the implications of the Trump era, and more generally, on the history of civil rights, violence, and inequality in employment, housing, or incarceration in the US. 

He will answer any questions you may have about his personal and professional journey, the complex dynamics of race and racism in America, the deep divisions in our country, how to use your voice to get involved and or anything else you may want to know. 

Program is open to all COCC students and is FREE but registration is required.

Space is limited.

Co-organized by The Nancy R. Chandler Visiting Scholar Program and COCC’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
