Viral Justice: How We Grow the World We Want
March 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join us as we welcome Dr. Ruha Benjamin to campus to discuss her newest book, Viral Justice: How We Grow the World We Want. In this talk, Dr. Benjamin draws on the lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic and introduces a micro-vision of change—a way of looking at the everyday ways people are working to combat unjust systems and build alternatives to the oppressive status quo.
Born of a stubborn hopefulness and grounded in social analysis, Dr. Ruha Benjamin offers a pragmatic and poetic approach to fostering a more just and joyful world. Following the lecture, audience members will have a chance to participate in a community conversation and Q&A session facilitated by three time UM alum, Leseliey Welch.
This event is both online and in person. Light refreshments will be served at 11:30am, before the session begins. Please share any questions you have for Dr. Benjamin about her research, teaching, publications via this form.
