Beyond America’s Racial Fault Line

flyer for Ben Jealous Book Talk

Join us for an in-person event at the Kelly Writer’s House as we feature Ben Jealous in dialogue about his new book Never Forget Our People Were Always Free: A Parable of American Healing.

 With a premise that the “path to healing America’s broken heart starts with each of us having the courage to heal our own,” the book features “lively parables that call on each of us to reconcile, heal, and work fearlessly to make America one nation.” (HarperCollins)

A New York Times bestselling author, community organizer, investigative journalist, former head of the NAACP, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, Professor of Practice, Annenberg School for Communication and School of Social Policy & Practice, University of Pennsylvania, Ben Jealous will share stories from the book in conversation with Camille Z.

Annenberg Professor in the Social Sciences, Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies, Africana Studies Department Chair, Faculty Director, Office of Penn First Plus, University of Pennsylvania.
