A Conversation with Author, Educator, and American Activist Tim Wise

The rise of racism, bigotry, antisemitism, and nazism is a call to action for each of us. I invite you to answer that call by listening to one of the most important voices of our time, TIM WISE.

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN.

Wise is the author of several critically acclaimed books, Dispatches From The Race War , White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, Between Barack And A Hard Place, DearWhite America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America , Speaking Treason Fluently Antiracist Reflections From An Angry White Male.
