Description

The Department of Political Science will host a roundtable discussion on diversity and democracy with Eddie Glaude Jr. of Princeton University and faculty from the JHU Homewood campus and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The event will be followed by an reception.

Glaude is a professor of religion and chair of the Center for African American Studies at Princeton. Glaude is the award-winning author of In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America and Exodus! Religion, Race, and Nation in Early 19th Century Black America, and an accomplished public intellectual and provocative media commentator, with recent appearances on PBS' Tavis Smiley Show, CNN, CSPAN and Fox's Hannity and Colmes. His latest book, Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul has been called "a powerful polemic on the state of black America that savages the idea of a post-racial society."

This event is part of a new initiative by the Department of Political Science called The Project in American Pluralism. The Project in American Pluralism seeks to promote the valuable contribution of pluralism as a key and unique pillar of American society and is funded by a grant from the Kolker-Saxon-Hallock Family Foundation of Baltimore Maryland.
