Open VISIONS Forum | Bank of America Women and Leadership Series: Isabel Wilkerson - Thursday, April 28 at 8:00 PM - Virtual Event
Time: 08:00 PM
Pulitzer Prize winner and National Humanities Medal recipient Isabel Wilkerson is the author of two New York Times bestsellers: the critically acclaimed Caste, and National Book Critics Circle Award-winner The Warmth of Other Suns. Wilkerson was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her work as Chicago Bureau Chief of The New York Times, making her the first black woman in the history of American journalism to win a Pulitzer and the first African-American to win for individual reporting. A gifted storyteller, Wilkerson captivates audiences with the universal human story of migration and reinvention, as well as the enduring search for the American dream.
She has lectured on narrative nonfiction at the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University and has taught at Princeton, Emory, and Boston universities. She has lectured at more than 200 colleges and universities across the United States, Europe, and in Asia. Her work has garnered seven honorary degrees, most recently from Bates College and Southern Methodist University. She has appeared on national programs such as CBS’s 60 Minutes, NPR’s Fresh Air, NBC’s Nightly News, and on MSNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, and others.
