Blackballed: The Black & White Politics of Race

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is very excited to announce an upcoming program for all members of the Georgia Tech community as part of Black History Month and we encourage you attend! We will be hosting Lawrence Ross, author of Blackballed: The Black & White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses, to speak next Tuesday, February 9, 2021 from 4:30-6:00pm ET. Blackballed explores the present and historical issues of racism on hundreds of American college campuses, and how that ties into today’s #BlackLivesMatter campaign. There will also be time for Q&A with him during the program.
