Zachary R. Wood - Uncensored: My Life and Uncomfortable Conversations at the Intersection of Black and White America — in conversation with Allison Stanger

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 22, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Wood came to national attention as president of Uncomfortable Learning, the Williams College student group dedicated to free speech. While the group has come under fire for inviting controversial speakers, Wood, class of 2018, is uncompromising in his view that all ideas should be openly debated. In this courageous, powerful memoir, he shares his own story for the first time, recounting his difficult upbringing in a poor D.C. neighborhood. Facing poverty, racism, and bitterness, Wood, a Robert L. Bartley Fellow at The Wall Street Journal, learned that survival depends on resisting entrenched views, a lesson he hopes to bring to wider audiences as he continues to push beyond established comfort levels—including his own. Wood will be in conversation with Allison Stanger, Middlebury College professor of international politics and economics and author of One Nation Under Contract.
