SOLD OUT: Race in America Panel: Susan Rice & Valerie Jarrett in conversation with April Ryan—at Sidwell Friends

Upcoming Event
Thursday, February 20, 2020 - 7:00pm

Join April Ryan, Washington Bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and author of Under Fire, At Mama’s Knee, and The Presidency in Black and White for the seventh in an ongoing series of discussions focusing on race in America. Ryan will examine recent and longstanding issues with panel members Valerie Jarrett and Susan Rice.

Valerie Jarrett served as the senior advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama and assistant to the president for public engagement and intergovernmental affairs from 2009 to 2017. Her most recent book, Finding My Voice, recounts her work ensuring equality for women and girls, advancing civil rights, reforming our criminal justice system, and improving the lives of working families.

Susan Rice served as the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor and was the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton's second term. Rice, now Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow at the School of International Service at American University, grew up in a family descended from immigrants on one side, slaves on the other. In her memoir, Tough Love, she reflects on how this heritage shaped her life both personally and professionally.

Each author's most recent book will be for sale on site, and a book signing will follow the event.
