Reception at the University Club immediately following lecture


Eugene Robinson writes a twice-a-week column on politics and culture for the Washington Post, contributes to the PostPartisan blog, and hosts a weekly online chat with readers. In 2009, he received the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for “his eloquent columns on the 2008 presidential campaign that focus on the election of the first African-American president, showcasing graceful writing and grasp of the larger historic picture.” Mr. Robinson’s lecture will concern his most recent book, Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America (2010), a study of the current fracturing of the African American populace into four quite different, and too often detached, socio-economic groups. He is also the author of Last Dance in Havana (2004), and Coal to Cream: A Black Man’s Journey Beyond Color to an Affirmation of Race (1999).


This event is free and open to the public.

Parking is free at the University Club.
