Tim Wise – “White Like Me”

There is a special session planned for JCU students Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m. in the Jardine Room. Students will have the opportunity to meet Tim Wise and discuss his work in an informal setting. Tim will also have a more formal open lecture at 6 p.m. in Donahue Auditorium.

Tim Wise has provided anti-racism training to teachers nationwide, and has conducted trainings with physicians and medical industry professionals on how to combat racial inequities in health care. He has also trained corporate, government, entertainment, military, and law enforcement officials on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions, and has served as a consultant for plaintiff’s attorneys in federal discrimination cases in New York and Washington State.

Wise has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs, is a regular contributor to discussions about race on CNN, and was featured in a segment on “ABC’s 20/20″ in 2007. He has been featured in several documentary films, including “Vocabulary of Change,” a public dialogue with legendary activist and scholar, Angela Davis. His film “White Like Me,” which he co-wrote and co-produced with the Media Education Foundation — and which explores both his personal biography and political analysis — will be released in September 2013
