Join us for a discussion on the phenomenon commonly known as “call-out” culture. Loretta Ross is an activist, professor, and public intellectual who has argued against publicly shaming or silencing someone who has said or done something we consider unacceptable. She advocates an alternative—“calling in”—as a better way to advance social justice. Ross’s talk will examine how open, and perhaps difficult, conversations may be key to increased understanding and empathy.
Ross’s presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A session moderated by student leaders from Female Leaders of Color (FLOC) and the Multicultural Leadership Council (MLC) at JHU.
Presented in partnership with Female Leaders of Color and the Multicultural Leadership Council, with promotional support by the Foreign Affairs Symposium. The event is co-sponsored by the Provost's Office and the Office of the Dean of Student Life.
