About the Event

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Ron Suskind traces race relations across the 25 years since his signature best-seller, A Hope in the Unseen -- following an impoverished student across three years from the inner city to the Ivy League -- was published, acclaimed and widely embraced. The book, a favorite of three successive Presidents (Clinton, Bush, Obama), became a Rorschach for America’s racial struggles...but it is not a book Mr. Suskind could write in these times. What has changed? And are those changes best for advancing equality in America? Ron Suskind will report from the epicenter of the issues on race and equality. (Copies of A Hope in the Unseen, now being produced for Broadway, will be available.)
