THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Face to Face Speaker Forum is excited to host a virtual event with renowned author Isabel Wilkerson.
Wilkerson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Humanities Medal, is the author of the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestsellers The Warmth of Other Suns, and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Caste: The Origins of our Discontents was published in August 2020 to critical acclaim and became a Number 1 New York Times bestseller. Wilkerson won the Pulitzer Prize for her deeply humane narrative writing while serving as Chicago Bureau Chief of The New York Times in 1994, making her the first black woman in the history of American journalism to win a Pulitzer Prize and the first African American to win for individual reporting. In 2016, President Barack Obama awarded Wilkerson the National Humanities Medal for “championing the stories of an unsung history.”
The event is free for Face to Face Speaker Forum season subscribers and students, faculty and staff at Wake Forest, as well as students and faculty in the Winston-Salem area. To register, visit go.wfu.edu/facetoface. Tickets for the general audience are $10.
Pre-programming will begin at 7:00 p.m. EST.
Recording is not permitted during this event.
This is part of the School of Divinity's Mac Bryan Prophetic Preaching Series, as well as the university's Face to Face Speaker Forum.
