Keynote Lunch with Eugene Robinson
Tuesday, January 30
Today’s News: Who’s Up, Who’s Down and What’s Really
Gene Robinson is on the front lines of news coverage today.
He is a twice-weekly, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington
who is syndicated in 145 newspapers across the nation and a prominent
television commentator. Widely recognized for his uncanny ability to
speak truth to power, Robinson will present a tested perspective on today’s
political news and share his firsthand account of how the news media is
influencing American culture through the 24/7 news cycle. With an innate
ability to cut through the clutter and provide clarity on today’s events,
Robinson takes a step back not only to look at the big picture, but to focus on
deeds—not just words. As one of the most prominent African American
intellectuals on the culture scene and author of Disintegration: The
Splintering of Black America
, Robinson will also share his understanding of
race relations in the United States today and explains why many popular
conceptions are now obsolete.
