Pulitzer Prize-Winner and Park’s Dean of Students Talk About Race

As part of OSI (Open Society Institute) Baltimore’s “Talking About Race” series, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Taylor Branch discussed his upcoming new book, The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement, and the importance of making history accessible for today’s youth at the Enoch Pratt Free Library on Tuesday, January 29. He was joined by Park’s Upper School Dean of Students Traci Wright along with Karen Webber-Ndour, executive director of student support services for Baltimore City Public Schools.

OSI-Baltimore’s longstanding “Talking About Race” series has sparked a citywide dialogue about race and bias. Speakers have addressed the topic from different perspectives and explored why it is important to discuss such issues openly and intelligently.
