UCSB Arts & Lectures Justice for All Series: Roxane Gay
“A strikingly fresh cultural critic.” Washington Post
“Smart and provocative.” USA Today
Roxane Gay brilliantly critiques the ebb and flow of modern culture with wit and ferocity. Her collection of essays, Bad Feminist, is a quintessential exploration of modern feminism, and her books – including An Untamed State, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, Graceful Burdens and Difficult Women – are celebrated for their honesty and humor. Gay also co-hosts the podcast Hear to Slay, pens the Work Friend column for The New York Times and was the first black woman to write for Marvel Comics. Learn more.
This event is part of the UCSB Arts & Lectures Justice for All Series. Justice for All confronts the inequalities that shape our policies, our institutions and our lives. Our collective awakening demands a just, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world, one which frees us to thrive. In this series public figures, organizers, thinkers and doers expose deeply embedded injustices and call for a more equitable future. This series is presented in collaboration with UCSB Campus Partners.
CCS Dean Gerardo Aldana is a strong advocate in promoting a more just and equitable future and is excited to be a part of the Justice for All Advisory Committee.
