Dismantling Bias Lecture Series

A Conversation with Cole Brown, Author of "Greyboy: Finding Blackness in a White World"

The Dismantling Bias: Antisemitism, White Supremacy, and Inequality Virtual Lecture Series explores the origins of racist ideologies and the construction of bias; examines the evolution and repercussions of antisemitism and white supremacy throughout history; and deconstructs the ways in which stereotypes, misconceptions, and prejudices shape contemporary society and culture.

Led by renowned historians, authors, and activists, the Dismantling Bias Virtual Lecture Series confronts the devastating consequences of racial bias while encouraging viewers to access and challenge their own bias. Through critical conversations and open dialogue, participants will consider their role in the antiracism movement and everyday actions they can take to dismantle inequality. 

Raised in the City of Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection, Cole Brown is a Philly kid at heart.

While spending childhood summers between Ethiopia and the Midwest, Cole matured in Philadelphia’s predominately white private schools and neighborhoods, an experience that delivered an awareness of race and class from a young age.

After graduating high school, Cole moved to Washington D.C. to attend Georgetown University as a finance major. Landmark events such as the death of Michael Brown caused Cole to rethink his original plans. Cole graduated from Georgetown with a major in Justice and Peace Studies and a passion for storytelling.

During his time at Georgetown, Cole was inspired to begin penning his first book, Greyboy: Finding Blackness in a White World

Greyboy is a collection of introspective essays that follows the journey of Black identity when subsumed in an environment of white privilege. 

Thanks to the generosity of H‐E‐B, this event is available at no cost to attendees, but registration is required.
