Dorothy Roberts: “Fatal Invention: Re-creating Race in the 21st Century”

Dorothy Roberts is a Professor of Law and Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. Roberts decries the “search by some genetic scientists for racial differences at the molecular level” and the attempts to treat race as a biological category. She will challenge “this resurgence of racial science” in a supposedly post-racial society and call on us ”to reaffirm our common humanity.”

All are invited to Coffee Hour after the talk. The Sunday programs are free and open to the public, and childcare is available. For more information, please visit

    Fabulous, brilliant woman told it like it sadly is... if you missed the talk, read her book.
