Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gordon-Reed to deliver Sussman Lecture


The Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement’s virtual Fall 2021 Sussman Lecture will be held Oct.14 at 7 p.m. The event will feature a discussion with author and Harvard professor Annette Gordon-Reed, one of the most authoritative voices on race and history in America and the first African American recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for history. During her lecture, Gordon-Reed will discuss the end of slavery and the disconnect between “freedom” in legal terms versus lived reality, the unfulfilled promise of the Declaration for Black Americans, and the “horrors” they have had to endure even after the Emancipation Proclamation. Gordon-Reed will also connect the violence and oppression that preceded and followed this celebration to the current fight for equality. The online presentation is free and open to the public, but registration is required and can be completed at this link.
