Media and Democracy with Marc Lamont Hill and Barbara Ransby
April 27 @ 12:30 pm
Award-winning journalist, professor, and activist Marc Lamont Hill is recognized for his bestseller Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond. In Fall 2018, while being paid as a political pundit for CNN, Lamont Hill became known for something else, too: criticizing Israel in a speech at the UN, and getting immediately fired. Joining Lamont Hill in conversation about media, discourse, democracy, and change is Barbara Ransby, UIC professor and author of Making All Black Lives Matter.
This program is presented in partnership with the Institute for the Humanities at University of Illinois at Chicago.
