URHP READS – Reading Between the Lies

June 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

 

Comedian Dick Gregory’s wit has propelled his political activism ever since his first stand-up routines in the 1950s. His book, “Defining Moments in Black History: Reading Between the Lies” (Harper Collins), features provocative essays about American history through the perspective of African Americans whose stories are not frequently told (or are mischaracterized) in history lessons. With biting wit and righteous indignation, Gregory counters the adage that history is written by the winners; sometimes all sides’ stories do get told, if we are open to hearing them. (CBS News, 6/27/2017)

This will be the final conversation about Reading Between the Lies.
