The Right Choice
Wednesday, November 20, 2019
The Chippewa Valley Technical College Diversity Resources, Student Life, ELL, and Curriculum & Professional Development teams are excited to invite you to participate in this year’s Diversity Conference and Culture Fair: “Seeking Refuge in Education.”
This FREE event includes the renowned antiracism author and featured keynote speaker Tim Wise, the ever-popular Culture Fair luncheon and fashion show, student and educator breakout sessions on equity in the classroom and on campus, and sessions from our Fulbright-Hayes Hmong Experience in Thailand.
Tim Wise: In this speech, drawn from his newest book, Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Jeopardizing the Future of America, Tim Wise examines the ways in which American politics and culture serve to rationalize inequalities on the basis of class and race. From the myth of “rugged individualism” to the racialized attacks on the nation’s poor, American ideology has long served to explain away inequity as a natural outcome of differential talent, effort or cultural attributes. But as Wise shows in this presentation, to believe that the poor and unemployed are to blame for their own plight, or that the rich deserve their positions and wealth is to believe in a pernicious and destructive lie that threatens the very heart of democracy and true equal opportunity.
