NY race scholar speaks Monday

On February 12, 2019

BY CRYSTAL EDMONDS / VN STAFF WRITER

A nationally recognized scholar on race matters will speak Monday, Feb. 18, on the McNichols Campus as part of Black History Month.

Crystal M. Fleming, an associate professor of sociology and Africana studies at SUNY-Stony Brook, will discuss her new book, “How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy, and the Racial Divide.”

The talk is free, requires no reservations and begins at 6:45 p.m. in student center ballroom.

Fleming’s book blends memoir, satire and critical race theory “to debunk common misconceptions about racism,” and provides a unique and irreverent take on what’s wrong with our “national conversation about race” – and what to do about it.

“How to Be Less Stupid About Race” is said to be “your essential guide to breaking through the half-truths and ridiculous misconceptions that have thoroughly corrupted the way race is represented in the classroom, pop culture, media and politics.”

Her 2018 book has drawn praise nationally.
