Monday February 24 Gorecki 204A at 4:30-6 pm with Callie Crossley
Callie Crossley is a media commentator and public speaker and currently hosts Under the Radar with Callie Crossley for WGBH in Boston, Massachusetts. Her weekly commentaries air Mondays during WGBH’s Morning Edition. She appears weekly on WGBH-TV’s Beat the Press, examining local and national media coverage, and frequently hosts Basic Black, which focuses on current events concerning communities of color. Using those platforms, she has tackled wide-ranging subject matter—from one town’s cable revolution, to Colin Kapernick’s protest, to the Women’s March, and the early days of the Trump administration. Crossley was a producer for Eyes on the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Years, the critically acclaimed documentary series, which earned her an Oscar nomination, a national Emmy, and the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award, the Gold Baton, considered the Pulitzer Prize of broadcast journalism. In 2017, she won an award from the National Association of Black Journalists for Hosting in the Television Public Affairs: Interview Discussion for the program “Basic Black: Celebrating a Prince, a Queen and a General” and the Barbara Stone Hollander Award for Women’s Leadership from the Women’s Institute at Chatham University. She has held two Harvard Fellowships—from the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, and the Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. She is a graduate of Wellesley College, and holds two honorary degrees, a Doctor of Arts degree from Pine Manor College and an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Cambridge College.
Tuesday April 14th 4-5:30 in Gorecki with Eboo Patel (also a Certificate Series event)
Eboo Patel, president of Interfaith Youth Core, founded the non-profit organization on the idea that religion should be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier or division. For over 15 years he has worked with governments, social sector organizations, and college and university campuses to help make interfaith cooperation a social norm. Patel served on President Obama’s Inaugural Faith Council and is the author of four books.
