Author Tim Wise to discuss his book, ‘Between Barack and a Hard Place,’ at IU Northwest on March 13

Office of Diversity and Equity will host acclaimed anti-racism writer and teacher

On Friday, March 13, beginning at 6 p.m., the Indiana University Northwest Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) will host a free presentation by author and anti-racism trainer Tim Wise, who will discuss his latest book, "Between Barack and a Hard Place: Challenging Privilege, Racism and Denial in the Age of Obama."

The community is invited to this free event, which will take place in the Savannah Center Auditorium, located at the southeast corner of the main campus parking lot at 33rd Avenue and Broadway in Gary, Ind.

Wise, who has authored three other books and spoken to hundreds of thousands of people and more than 400 college campuses, is one of the most prominent anti-racism writers and activists in America today. He has provided anti-racism training to teachers, physicians, corporate entities, government employees, law enforcement officials, and journalists, and has taught numerous classes on racism.

IU Northwest is pleased to bring Wise to campus for an illuminating discussion of how the election of America’s first African-American president impacts the issue of racism in the United States. For more information, contact the ODE at (219) 980-6705.
