Special keynote event

'Killing the Black Body' Revisited in the Era of Black Lives Matter

This is an exciting opportunity for faculty to teach about racism in society, science law and public policy, utilizing Roberts’ acclaimed works including “Fatal Invention” and “Killing the Black Body.”

We encourage faculty to consider including Dorothy Roberts’ public lecture in their spring syllabi along with assigned readings to prepare students for the lecture.
